More Garden Critters


Common Blue Damselfly


Very common in our garden on this particular sunny day. There were a couple of larger dragonflies quartering the airspace above the garden, but they weren’t so obliging in posing for photos as the damselflies.


Green Shield Bug.


Bumble-bee. Bombus….Pascuorum? Perhaps.


Flowering Currant leaf on a fern.

The flowering currant in the bottom corner of our garden doesn’t look very well. I don’t think that it appreciates the shade it sits in beneath the large hazel.


Another Bumble-bee. Bombus…Humilis?


And another Bumble. Bombus…Horturum? (To be honest, I don’t have much of a clue.)


This looks like another specimen of the dapper fly that had me confused a few weeks ago. It looks quite like the Empis Tessallata in my field guide, but when I search for images on t’internet the resemblance isn’t half so strong. So I’m stumped.

Still having lots of fun with my new(ish) camera however.
