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 following pix show a failed hatching of the six spot burnet moth ( above ).
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.
The pic below shows a pair of mating six spot burnet moths, while in the foreground you can see the failed hatching of another one.
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.
