19th July


Local Hedgerow.


Sunny, with some drizzle.

Two Ichneumon wasps - predators - I wonder if the yellow one was attracted to the Angelica for its nectar or because of the other nectaring insects.


This is a more typical shot of the Hard Shield Fern.


The Knapweed, or Hardhead has just opened - yet another flower that is strongly attractive to bees and hoverflies.

I'm tripping over Ringlets at the moment. This one on the Ragwort made a nice image.

This close-up of the head shows the tongue with pollen.
