04/07/2019 A few more bugs from our May holiday.
Maximum temperature today 32C, minimum 18C. Dry. 16km/h North-easterly winds with gusts up to 34 km/h.
Still many unknowns as I have just not had the time to search !!!
Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) female....
Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) Male...
A little hopper on a buttercup
Chrysomelinae family - leaf beetle - it looks like it has had a good meal !
This frog with the green back should be easy to identify but I am not sure at all.
The Green Frog Group are three related and interbreeding species:
Edible Frog (Pelophylax kl. esculentus)
Pool Frog (Pelophylax lessonae)
Marsh Frog (Pelophylax ridibundus).
Pyramidal orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis).
A hopper and possibly a bee.
Oedemera noblis, probably a female with thinner legs than the male.
Froghopper (Cercopis vulnerata).
Possibly a Longhorn, but which one?
Tawny Longhorn Beetle (Paracorymbia fulva) so I am led to believe.
There was lots of water around...
Common Pond Skater (Gerris lacustris), in love.
