    Don't seem to have 'upload attachments' button. Perhaps need more reputation?

    The good thing is that it is non-stinging.

    I spotted an ichneumon wasp searching the tool shed door frame for a woodworm to lay its eggs in with its long non-sting.

    I believe it is a herald moth. I've never seen one before.

    Bees have discovered their new favourite flower in the garden. Was the nepeta but now crowding around the eryngium big blue. Swear one was having a kip in it the other day. Click image for larger version

    Saw an interesting spider on the lemon verbena. Internet is suggesting it is a cucumber green orb spider? Click image for larger version  Name:	8CF8672F-202D-4ED3-B2BA-E9CF6B8EFB61.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	199.3 KB ID:	2548629

    Gosh you might be right, hadnt considered a moth as was during the day but l see that it is seen in daytime. Either way I was quite chuffed to see something different.

    Gosh, how lucky! They are tree-top butterflies and don't often come down to the ground.

    edit: Actually, looking at the white tips on its wings and the way they are held leads me to think it may be a chimney sweeper moth, annie

    I spotted an interesting looking fly on my plot.
    I managed to get it identified too but no common name.
    Coremacera marginata
