18th September


Original Hedgerow, leg 2.


Dull with showers.

The fuzzy white ball is a gall made by Jaapiella veronicae - a fly. The growing tip of the plant forms a bulb that contains one or more larvae of the fly.

Two flowers making a second push - Meadow Vetchling and Birdsfoot Trefoil.



This tiny (4mm) Stilleto Fly was too small to make out properly with the naked eye. The macro shot shows that it has caught - and is consuming - an even tinier fly.


Common Carder Bee dangling from Bush Vetch flowers. This is by far our most common Bumblebee this year.


A large (4 cm.) larva moving quickly through the undergrowth. Bright-line Brown-Eye - Lacanobia oleracea.
