A mixed bag.

Went out over the week-end, still hardly any birds about but Butterflies and Dragonflies are definately on the increase. This was a joint effort, Sue took some of the Dragonflies/Butterflies.

Not sure what's going on here, Sue thinks it looks like a Spider wrapped up, probably the old man now she's finished with him.

This is a Tortoise Bug. You can see from the underside how it got its name.

Can anyone ID this Caterpillar? We have looked in all our books but can't find it.
We think this brown Butterfly is a Grayling. Supposedly quite common, but a lifer for us.

The Moths are mostly from Johns backlog.

Nature in Miniature.

Loads of stuff backing up on the computer, here's some we've finally managed to get around to.
John's on a week of nights soon so hopefully there won't be so much photography going on, although he has treatened to take the Moth trap with him!
