Saturday was a 'reasonable' afternoon by the standards of the summer. We entered the garden and were a bit surprised to see so many autumnal seedheads in August!
I don't think we managed to spot one butterfly, but the volunteer staff member was very helpful and pointed out some other insects that we might well have missed.
The selection below shows these creatures and also a couple of mini-beasts that we spotted for ourselves.
|Camouflaged Shieldbug instar nymph on sage|
|Not an insect this time, but an as yet unidentified arachnid!|
|The closest we came to a butterfly! A Mint Moth (thank you, RR, for confirming ID!)|
|A Willow Emerald damselfly|
|There were quite a few Bumblebees around|
