This morning in the sun walking through areas of wildflowers and hedges the insects were out in droves.
Butterflies – clouded yellow,orange tip and common blue.
Damselflies- lots but one I haven’t seen here before with a distinctive blue band at the base of the abdomen called blue tailed Damselfly (Ischnura elegant)
Bees- honey bees and bumble bees all busy on the masses of comfrey with pollen baskets full.
Beetles- two brightly coloured looking at identification the first one stenocorus meridianus the second really red colour – investigating.
In a small area the amount of activity on the plants was huge . I would like to sit for an hour and count insect visitors to one small area.. sounds like a project.
