It is feeling shy but you can just make out the tyres.
I have been out a couple of times to try for some better pictures of the Common Sycamore Aphid. It is very difficult as they really don’t like the camera and fly away. I did manage a couple of shots.
Whilst searching Sycamore leaves I came across this little black nymph. I am still looking but am tending towards it being Orthonotus rufifrons.
Whilst I was tracking it this way and that as it explored the leaf I noticed it pass another aphid. Walk right over, would be more accurate but never mind.
I managed one shot of it on it’s own but then I lost it I’ll try and find another one and also what sort of one it is.
On the way back from the forest I spied several of these pretty little flies feeding on grass pollen.
I am going to guess again. It’s a Muscid Fly. Helina abdomninalis.
I have few plans for tomorrow but will have a look for something small to show you.
