It is warm out of the wind but getting out of the wind is the problem. I went out a couple of times looking for insects but everything was blowing every which way. I found a White-tailed Bumblebee and thought it was dead. Whilst setting up to focus stack it I noticed it moving a leg. I gave it a drink of dilute honey and five minutes later it was doing circuits round the van. As I was set up I decided to stack a dandelion seed head.
I went out again and as the wind blew a bush inside out I spotted this beauty.
It’s a Green Leaf Weevil; possibly Polydrusus sericeus though I suspect it’s legs are the wrong colour. These will enlarge with a click as they aren’t cropped. It’s a grand start to the week even if it is only very small. I’ll now go and spend an hour ploughing through leaf weevil images but as few have a scale it’s a bit difficult to be sure what I’m looking at.
