Variously: (possibly) a Queen Tree Bumblebee, an anonymous bee, a shiny green fly, a damsel fly of some sort, a Cinnabar moth, and a million baby spiders, hanging off the washing line.

The advantage when critters are emerging, is that they're a bit dazed and confused - the damsel fly and the moth were probably waiting for their wings to dry and their heads to clear. :)
The damsel fly was very aware of me, and kept shuffling behind the stem to try to hide - but it made no attempt to fly. The moth may have been asleep for all I know, it didn't move at all.


  1. Your shots are awesome and deserve some stars :)

  2. Aw thanks Kella! I was pleased with the damsel fly - it was waving about in the breeze and I didn't know if I'd get any shots in focus. It's not pin-sharp but it's OK. Mad eyes, it's got, hey?
