It's a good excuse to catch up with sorting through some photos though. Here are a few macro shots from last Sunday afternoon when the weather was somewhat nicer.
|Eristalis tenax - a male looking a bit tatty. If you zoom in you can see his 'hairy eyes' - one of the ID clinchers for this species|
|One of the Sphaerophoria species of hoverfly - can't get the to species level with photos alone.|
|A male Common Field Grasshopper - Chorthippus brunneus|
|A female Common Field Grasshopper Chorthippus brunneus|
|Meadow Brown Maniola jurtina|
|Speckled Wood butterfly - Pararge aegeria|
|Common Green Capsid - Lygocoris pabulinus|
