insects seen in the garden today..

20 comments


walking around with my camera, i thought i’d snap a few critters,,,,

this little chap happily wandering along the path..

Perhaps a friend of the other one…. who knows :-)

Sunbathing but waiting for dinner….. i wonder who he’ll invite for that!!

Found this little beauty hovering by the trellis…

Sunbathing after a long hover :-))

Just a few little friends in the garden, i also saw my first water skater but he hid really well under my grass in the pond/bog garden area and couldn’t snap him…..

thanks for taking time to view my garden buddies ….

Some lovely shots - I've yet to see any beasties in my garden :(

I don`t like spiders but will admit they make a great subject to use when the camera is in ones hands, like all the little creatures in ones garden.
Whilst returning from a walk with Brynner, I spotted a conifer absolutely smothered in ladybirds, didn`t like to take a shot as it was in someone else`s garden, I haven`t seen so many for donkey`s years, guess the warm sunshine had fetched them out...
Nice pics Surreylad...
