Late summer highlights

It has been a long time since my last post, but, while I haven’t seen many insects – or much wildlife – these last few cold months (partly because I’ve been hibernating myself), I still have lots of photos from the tail end of last summer to share.

Here are a couple of my favourites, with no real theme to them…

A bumblebee and a honey bee share a drink from eryngium bourgatii (I think), otherwise known as Sea Holly
