It’s Insect Time!

Yes, it’s the time of year when I come home with an aching back from all the bending down hunting for little creatures, lots of bites in spite of my best efforts to avoid them, and a sunburned neck. All good fun!
From the top left, clockwise: small magpie moth, cardinal beetle, cinnabar moth, mother shipton moth, female adonis blue butterfly, sand wasp, burnet companion moth, honey bee. All found at either Skylarks Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire or Chambers Farm Wood in Lincolnshire.
