These hideous Blowflies landed on my jeans as I was sitting on the ground trying to take pictures of some lilies, so of course I shot them too.
Those small white dots on its left wing tip are live larvae! Yuk! They seemed much larger than normal….
This daisy dwelling Spider had just caught a tiny fly for breakfast – the body of the Spider was only about 5mm in diameter.
The Harlequin bug was sitting on a Hollyhock bud, so all those colours are true.
I mentioned to a friend that I wanted to take some shots of caterpillars, but could not find any in my garden…..(lucky me)…….this morning she gave me a small jar with two of these stripey ones in it. It is the caterpillar of the Grapevine Moth, of which I posted a photo earlier. I now have two of them living in a very large glass jar, on vine leaves, so you can look forward to seeing some more of them as they grow.
