Hi guys

how we all doing? im still really busy doing things round the house but i am on the verge of having it al done and putting it on the market! bit more work than i had originally anticipated!

anyways.... a few pics.... from shipley park (local bit of green!) the first i had never seen before in my life.... slugs everywhere climbing up to nab the pollen out of the flowers.

the second one is a moth that has just emerged from the crysalis. any ideas what type it is? it was pretty bad light hence the graininess oh and i was on about 6x zoom plus a pretty hefty crop.

Steve

Sorry ... a bit slow on this reply!

My chum (no finer authority could be found in the land) has provided an answer!

Cheers, KK.

Hi Bob

this is a rather nicely marked female Ghost Moth. one of the swift family and a micro! (well technically anyway).

Thanks for that KK :G

i guessed you would know or manage to find out. when he says a micro... i gather that means a small moth?

i guess the reason it was so nicely marked is that it was brand spanking new :-)

hope y'all well.

Steve

Yeah! .... Micro-lepidoptera .... the small insignificant (to most people) moths that generally have no common (or vernacular) names .... usually studied by specialists and usually live completely anonymously and obliviously to the general public!

Macro-lepidoptera ...... the larger moths that get lumped together with Butterflies and frequently have common names ......Belted Beauty, Burnets, Hawk-moths, Buff Arches, Pugs, Waves, Rustics and Underwings ....... all well known to your average entomologist and are often noticed and then ignored by Joe-Public!

Shane is an expert on Macro's ... amongst other things!

More pics ...more pics ..... he cried!

Cheers, KK.

Nice Shots,

Thought I would post a few.

Very difficult leaning out ofbedroom window trying not to drop the camera!!
Only birds could make a nest in our Chilean potatoe tree.....directly below a bird box:lol:

The Bees have made the bird box their home after the blue-tits left.

Had to put string below branches and tie them to the window handles, the heavy rain last week has caused the branches to drop.

Chilean potatoe tree!

Thats the plant the birds have nested in. Thats what it says on the label, just growing up the side of the house on some trellis.(here when we moved in)

I don't know I'm no gardener. I think the birds are black birds, not sure on that either....... ok so I'm rubbish at plants and birds, and everything else, but I can make a decent cup of tea

Priorities thats whats needed!
