Several 'mini beasts' caught our eye as we walked around the Lakes of Straw's Bridge this morning. Among the most beautiful was one of the hundreds of Common Blue Damselflies (Enallagma cyathigerum).
A little further on and the Ragwort plants were providing a meal for several Cinnabar Moth Larvae (Tyria jacobaeae).
Lastly a small, red and black beetle seen scurrying about on another grass stalk. This is a Soldier Beetle (Rhagonycha fulva).
