The gendarme beetle, (Pyrrhocoris apterus), spring must be on its way!

Blue Tit against a grey sky.


Green shoots on the willow tree.

Rosemary beetle, (Chrysolina americana) so pretty but a pest!


  1. Beautiful blooms, and the Rosemary beetle is pretty. Yes, they can be pests and annoying.

    1. Thanks Linda, it is a shame that something so beautiful is a pest but that certainly is the case here! Thanks for the comment, take care Diane

  2. Nice post - I hope to catch up with some of those small birds in Europe this summer!

    Cheers - Stewart M - In Melbourne, but jet-lagged!

    1. Glad to hear you are back, but interesting that you are heading to Europe this year. Where are you planning to go to, anywhere near us? Thanks for the comment, cheers Diane

  3. Love your flowers and critters photos. I love spring and looking forward to more spring photos.

    1. I thought critter was an American word but you always seem to use it!!! I love our insects when spring arrives,it means things must be warming up. Trouble is winter seems to arrive again all to soon,I am sure the years are shorter than they used to be :-)Keep well Diane
