An irregular blog of photos taken by me of insects and other natural history subjects on my travels around Yorkshire, Britain and Europe. Hopefully you'll find them useful in putting a name to your own specimens but always check your identifications with an expert.


Prince of Wales Park, Eldwick - Sunday 05/04/09

I can't believe it's April before my first post of the year...mainly due to the weather but other commitments have also prevented me getting out and about with the camera. Not much insect activity in the Prince of Wales Park in Eldwick as the cold weather earlier in the year has definitely held back the Bilberry but there was the odd bumblebee about along with a very flighty Comma, which I eventually managed to pin down after several attempts.
