  • I found a very colourful insect in my garden yesterday morning. When I found it, the critter was on its back. The legs were moving slightly but not all of them. I brought it to the kitchen and having taken a few ID shots, I left in in the sunlight in the hope that the warmth would reanimate it. Sure enough, after a couple of minutes it took to the air and was gone. I posted pics on Twitter and was informed that it was a Rose Chafer. Beautiful colouring.
