Millipedes have four legs per segment and Centipedes have two this is not a four spot ladybird but a seven spot one as three spots are hidden from view. What I have never realised is that they can retract their heads like a tortoise. They only have one head, though this one has two as it is sitting on a mirror.
I went out looking for a beetle but found a Centipede. I hope it is Lithobius forficatus. I got this from reading Phil’s blog. He did it proud as he managed to capture a whole one. CENTIPEDE ON WHITE. It looks much better but then Phil is a proper naturalist.
I prefer these to Millipedes as they seem more interesting. When I first pop them down I have to wait to see which direction they head off as they look very similar front and back. This is the head end.
I think I have about exhausted this mirror business so unless I find something new and exciting I’ll leave it alone for a while.
I hope you all enjoyed Easter. It has been baking hot here with hardly a cloud in the sky.
