More flying things today. To begin with, a gorgeous, bright blue little jewel found fluttering around the clover this morning. The Common Blue Butterfly (Polyommatus icarus).
Next, a larger butterfly - the Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui).
A less conspicuous insect to finish today's posting. Indeed, you cannot even see it! Only the presence of small, red, blisters on the surface of the leaves of the Crack Willow trees give them away. We have all seen these 'galls' on willow leaves but did you know they contain the larva of the Willow Sawfly (Pontania proxima)?
