Tue 21/03/17

Quite a nice day today, and there is starting to be a lot of wildlife of the small variety around. Seeing as I’m already on a bit of a roll ladybird-wise, I decided to photograph this 7-spot while I had the chance. I also got a pretty decent view of a freshly-emerged small tortoiseshell butterfly.

This is vaguely interesting as well; I found out a couple of years ago that overwintering green shield bugs go brown, so the first ones you see in the new year are often still brown, like this one. It doesn’t take long before they are bright green again though. While we’re at it, check out these little Zygiella spiders, that may or may not be a pair.
