A lot quieter today after the onslaught of last week, where it was taking 3 hours to edit the photos for the day. Few shots of various insects seen today.
Eristalis rupium - with the 1st segment of the hind tarsus pale, chocolate markings on milky coloured wing and large size are all diagnostic for this species. This species is a northern species and the valley's half a dozen records represent the furthest south it has been recorded in Britain.
Ringlet - 28 seen today, this species is having the best year that I can remember.
Stenotus binotatus - plant bug, surprising how many different species there are when you start noticing them.
White-lipped Snail - following on from yesterdays snail posting of Brown-lipped Snail, once I've photographed the common Garden Snail, that's my knowledge of Land Snails exhausted.
