In previous  years we've  only  ever  found  a  single  Lily  Beetle - this  year  Ian is  at nearly  twelve  so far!
Sigh!

Lots here and worryingly I've come across several narcissus fly sunning themselves on pots of snowdrops...
But to lift the spirits I was delighted to see that the brimstone butterfly is a perfect colour match for Paeonia 'Sequestered Sunshine'. (Bad photo but joyful sight!)

Tristan, you are right about the red beetle, my mistake. I think it could be Pyrochroa coccinia.

Magpie moth.



Hoverfly.





Even a shallow bowl of water provides a drinking and bathing supply for wildlife in hot times.

Two rather  super  phots, taken from and  upstairs  window, through a  window  screen by  an American friend -  I think these  are  lovely. (I know  others  may disagree!)
