This is a really tiny beetle, on a flower of Hypericum / St.John's Wort / Rose of Sharon:
This unlovely beastie is a Chafer Grub, and I found him in one of my potato pots as I was harvesting. Fortunately he seemed to be alone...
This is the pupa of a Ladybird. Which type, I don't really know.
This is a small spider, just about to devour a greenfly which has become entangled in its web:
I'm not sure what this is. It looks like a cross between a wasp and a cricket!
|That fly is taking a close look too...|
Is it a Goodie or a Baddie, I ask?
This is a Hoverfly, sipping nectar from an Olive flower:
This year I have seen hardly any butterflies - just one or two Small Whites. Not many bees recently either. I imagine they are finding it very difficult to get enough food because there are a lot fewer flowers for them.
