A Walk of Discovery

I am lucky enough to live right on the edge of green belt land, and this morning I ventured out amongst the trees and the grass before the rains came again. These are some of the wonderful and beautiful insects I came across in the English jungle. I have yet to identify them all.

  1. Love the soft muted colours of your featured image. Funky looking blue-grey larva. Any hey, wait a minute … I think I saw that black and white beetle in my yard. (Really.) Let me know when you ID it. 🙂

    • Thank you. I like to get up close and personal, a bug’s eye view if you like, and for the grasshopper I had to get right down in the grass. The beetle is called the Black and Yellow Longhorn Beetle (Rutpela maculata), or the Yellow and Black Longhorn Beetle, whichever way you look at it lol! I hadn’t seen one for awhile, and before I knew it the darn thing lifted off and disappeared. Thankfully it allowed me one reasonable shot.
