    It looks like another Tortoiseshell. Small or large, I'm not sure.image

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Our 2 part albino blackbirds - one with one 'splodge' on his back (we thought he'd been unfortunate enough to sit under another very inconsiderate bird...) and one with2 'bars' of white.  We believe they may be progeny of our part albino (white head, neck, shoulders and black elsewhere) bird.  Despite what other articles say, they don't seem to get any 'aggro' from the other birds.  Also 2 pigeons "billing and cooing".  Normally, pigeons around here seem to have an aggressive sexual nature but these two just sit together, graze together and occasionally nuzzle one another - siblings maybe?  Sparrows, blue tits and great tits competing over the feeders...makes even this dull day worthwhile.

    Big fat bumbly on my Lavateras and one of my Robins following me at very close quarters waiting for tidbits. 

    Everything else must be indoors watching the rugby. There is nothing moving and it's beautifully still and quiet.

  • Just saved a bee that had flown into a web. Fortunate as a great big spider was just about to have it for lunch with just seconds to spare!
