There was a sunny spell for 5 minutes sometime last week, I forget which day. I can't remember a summer quite like this one for persistent rain!
Anyway, I took the opportunity to snap some shots.
Here's a hoverfly that I was able to identify in my books later that day.
Here's one that I couldn't! (-:
This 10 spot ladybird was pottering along the verbena leaves. I know he doesn't look like he has 10 spots, but I think that is what he is a variety of.
Lastly, this moth was waiting out the day on our kitchen wall. The nearest I could get to an ID is possibly a Mottled Beauty. If anyone knows any different, I'd been grateful to hear from them.
