My first Meadow Brown butterflies of the year enjoying the white clover.
A Silver Y moth at rest: the name from the mark in the wing.
A side on view of a male Black-tailed Skimmer showing the yellow markings along the side.
The usual view is a resting male from above when it looks blue.
The female Black-tailed Skimmer is mainly yellow with some black marks.
Note too the unmarked wings (apart from the small mark in the pterostigma at each wing-tip).
A female Black-tailed Skimmer in plan view.
Garden Bumblebee (Bombus hortorum) also enjoying the white clover.
A rather better photo of a male Oedemera nobilis beetle with its swollen hind femur – why?
