When I got home I took the camera out round the garden in the late afternoon sun to photograph small things that might otherwise escape our notice. This has become a favourite past-time of mine over the past couple of years. As with standing still and silent beneath the Willow, it is amazing what you notice, and what shows itself if you sit quietly and wait, observing one small patch of land.....
|Prionus coriarius, a rare Longhorn Beetle measuring 5cm in length. Also known as the Tanner or Sawyer beetle. Sadly, this one was dying when I found it.|
|Betony, grown from seed this spring, with Bee Attachment :-)|
|Late instar Dock Bug|
|Likely to be Red Admiral Pillar|
|Common Froghopper on sorrel|
|Dead-Head Hover Fly (I think)|
|Early instar dock bug|
|The inside of a rose|

Have a peaceful evening, all.
