New £99 camera and a bit of sunshine. These are just a few of the pics I’ve taken since last Saturday getting “up-close” with the little creatures that live in my garden.
Fly : Greenbottle Lucilia sp
Hoverfly : Melanostoma scalare? (big head, little body!)
Comma : Polygonia c-album scoffing one of the fallen apples
Another hairy fly with big eyes!
Hoverfly : Eristalis tenax? (big nose!)
Comma : Polygonia c-album (I wonder why they are called “comma” butterflies…!!)
Flesh Fly Sarcophaga carnaria (great name, gorgeous eyes!)
Speckled Bush-cricket Leptophyes punctatissima (lazing in the sun)
