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, 24/04/10

An hour spent in Prince of Wales Park on Saturday afternoon produced a couple of mining bee species and more Eriocrania subpurpurella but still no Green Hairstreaks.
