The other day one of my more observant readers noticed that I’d lost the plot a little and wasn’t posting enough diverse images. I’ll put that right today.
This morning I decided as it was dry and cool to walk the other way through the wood and take a 50mm lens with me. Here are some of the views I snapped.
I bet a pound to a shilling that you suspect that I don’t know what they are, well for once I do. From left to right we have Foxglove, Lady’s Bedstraw and a Vetch, a yellow Vetch.
We wandered on our way which sometimes was thin and other times fat.
We then got to the last bit of uphill and I had a lie down to get my breath back, sorry, I mean to take a snap of another foxglove.
A month ago I could hop over the wall here and save the big circular wander round the edge of the forest but the barley is too tall now and I don’t want to flatten it.
After breakfast I went to check on the Puss Moth larva and bless my soul it had turned into larvae. One is a bit smaller than the other and neither have yet got the big red ring around their face.
I also found a few flies.
Or several of the same fly. It’s a Sawfly; Tenthredo notha. How the hell the proper macro photographers find insects that aren’t hiding or covered in pollen I don’t know but it is something I intend to find out.
That’s all for today. I have some more stuff to edit and try to identify.
