So, spring seemed to burst into life before being hit by an icy blast again. Here are some of the things that came out in the sunshine. I will start with the dark purple tulips that I planted.
The comma butterfly posed nicely for me, while an orange tip butterfly thwarted my every effort.
The holly blue came out rather overexposed, but I was just grateful that I got a shot of it.
There were hoverflies, I think this is a Marmalade Hoverfly.
I thought that this was a sort of hoverfly, but it seems it is a sawfly.
I think this is a type of solitary bee.
Pretty sure this is an Ashy Mining Bee.Bee enjoying the last of the flowering currant.
I was rather pleased with this shot of a buff tailed bumblebee in flight. Sometimes I get lucky.Some ladybirds were getting friendly with each other. Unfortunately, as they are non-native harlequins, they aren’t friendly to anything else.
Weeds? I don’t seen any weeds, just pretty flowers that feed our pollinators.
And finally, here is the lilac bush taken by flash at night. It gives off the most lovely scent day and night.
