Insects of the day
There are less and less interesting insects about, so it’s kind of re-assuring to spot them in the garden. They are not all as nice-looking or friendly to the plants, but here there are…
Cinnabar moth (Tyria jacobaeae) on (Senecio cineraria ‘Silver Dust’) foliage.
Juvenile stage (instar 5) of Nezara viridula bug.
Vanessa atalanta, the red admiral butterfly on Echinacea purpurea JS® 'White Prairie'
Common red soldier beetle (Rhagonycha fulva) on Eucryphia x nymansensis flower.
The Renegade Gardener (Don Engebretson)
