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, 18/04/10

I went to Prince of Wales Park, Eldwick today to look for Green Hairstreaks and bees. I didn't spot any Hairstreaks but did manage to photograph various species of bumblebees and this Cuckoo bee, Nomada goodeniana (I'm reliably informed) which is a cleptoparasite of various species of Mining bee.
