03/08/2017 Photos in the garden - what a change :-)))))
Maximum temperature 26C, minimum 16C. 9 km/h NW winds with 27 km/h gusts. Dry.
Calendula and hoverfly.
Another bud on my favourite rose bush.
Small white (Pieris rapae)
Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria)
A very bedraggled Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)
A thirsty bee.
Thought this was a hoverfly, but that sting in the tail looks like something else!
As if we have not got enough of these already!!!!!
Yesterday's crab spider today. It caught a bee, but it looks like every insect within range is trying to get in on the act. I blew gently on it to see if all the little flies would go but it dropped the bee instead :-(((
It went to the edge to see what was happening and I think that little fly on its head is in danger!
The neighbour's cat hiding under the hedge watching out for 'our' little birds. Grrrrrrr.
