I am getting a bit behind what with all the excitement of the referendum. By the time this appears the result should be known as Google seem to take about twelve hours to publish posts and it’s the back of five now. It posted after an hour, superfast Googly today.
Here are a few insects.
Green Nettle Weevil. There are several of these and I can’t tell them apart so I’ll stick with Phyllobius sp. These are the same weevil but the first one has the exposure dropped using the adjustment brush. Polydrusus sp. are similar but the antennae are fixed to the side of it’s head and they don’t have such distinctive hooks on their legs. Ref. NATURE SPOT
Marbled Orb Weaver. I wish I could identify it’s prey as there are lots of these tiny flies about.
A Green Orb Weaver with what I think is a Rove Beetle for breakfast.
I think this is a Click Beetle but I spent quite a few minutes tipping it on it’s back to make it click but it wouldn’t perhaps it wasn’t in the mood.
That’s all for today.
