In the Garden

We had another visit from Henry Hedgehog this morning. I have been putting cat food out each evening and something is eating it. I put some out for him and he polished that off so I gave him another portion. I’ll have to get some more.

The left hand insect was crawling up a window (on the outside). A Twitter user identified it as Rhopalus Subrufus. It is quite rare so it doesn’t have a common name. The other insect, also identified via Twitter, is a Death’s Head Hoverfly.

I managed to get a clear shot of a hover fly in mid air and a rare visit by a damsel fly enabled me to get another mid air shot complete with shadow.

Finally our Canterbury Bells are bloomin’ bootiful. I will be posting some images from today’s walk around Wollaton Park by tomorrow morning.
