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.


Walton Colliery LNR, near Wakefield 13/07/14

I lead a BDS/Friends of Walton Colliery LNR walk today. 16 attendees recorded 10 species despite the blustery wind. The find of the day, for me at least, was this stunning Puss Moth caterpillar.
