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.


Oaken Wood 28/05/10

Oaken Wood on the Surrey/Sussex border is a great place to see all sorts of invertebrates, particularly Wood White and Grizzled Skipper butterflies. However, I was pleased to finally see one of the bees that I've been searching for...the Long-Horned Bee, Eucera longicornis.
