It has been a supermarket morning so I can eat again. I went out bugging when I got back but after all the rain there is precious little about.I popped a little bouquet together, the yellow is gorse. the lilac is lilac and the white one I will guess is hogweed.
I did find this tiny Leaf Beetle; I think it is Gastrophysa viridula they are very variable in colour and this one had a bronze/green metallic sheen to it. I just got two shots before the wind blew it away.
It looks as if a new batch of St Mark’s flies have hatched this one has glued itself to the honeydew on a laurel bud.
Bibio marci these are both male St Mark’s flies. It is rare to see a female resting on leaves I don’t know why.
I’m playing about with my blog template so there is likely to be a bit of variation over the next few days.
