Good, I like this thread. Too windy here for flies today but damp weather with intermittent sun has brought out a lot of plant preditors. I am doing a sequence of photos of villains "caught in the act". Here is todays
I was looking at some low Pyracantha in full flower today + was alive with insects: a Wasp Beetle, several Honey Bees, Several bumblebees including B.hypnorum, B.pratorum +B. terrestris plus my IOD,several Andrena cineraria.
This was on my tomato today, pleased about this, and also the tomato plant (which is looking healthy). It has to be Corizus hyoscyami.
Other insects of note were a confusion of Azure Damselflies, a stringency of Large Red Damselflies, a singularity of Broad-Bodied Chasers, a whimsicality of Common Blue Butterflies and a friendlessness of 7-spot Ladybirds. Insect of the Seventh of June by Wabi Gallery, on Flickr
Other than the Lepidoptera at Bison Hill we had a green Cryptocephalus, probably C. hypochaeridis, a 24-spot Ladybird,several Oedemera nobilis +probably the star of the show, a seemingly huge Cockchafer in flight.
