Below I have posted pix of an assortment of Butterflies, Bees, Moths and Insects. But mainly this is about the Six Spot Burnet Moth. Below are images of them mating, feeding, sadly dying in the middle of hatching and waiting to  hatch.

The pic below shows two chrysalis of the six spot burnet moth yet to hatch on Agrimony. The failed one above was on giant knapweed, not that this was the problem.Image

Butterflies, Bees, Orchids, Insect Pix from Kent, England


Common Blue Butterfly, wings open and closed. Brown Argus Butterfly (actually one of the Blue Butterfly Family). Man Orchid. Marsh Orchid. Bees, Beetles,Insects, Wild Flowers and Galls on Willow. Galls are a parasite; plant, fly, bacteria, fungi, etc, that grow within a plant. These Galls will most likely be a species of Sawfly when they emerge.

All pictures taken with an Olympus 820i compact digital camera. Apologies for some blurring. It was a bit blustery today.
