Dodging the rain and making lists....
Last week we had the sun , this week we have gone back to rain and wind, not the best cocktail for taking photos.
This rather large slug did not mind, I took the time to watch him munch through this leaf, to watch it's mouth open and take a bite, I could see how they manage to devour my plants in one night.
I love a good list and like to keep records of what I have seen and were..
so for the past few weeks I have literally been going through all my photos from the last two years!
I have made a list for my Garden, Park ,Yeadon banks and Chevin these are the places I visit the most. Recording what can be found in these places from bees to trees (still work in progress).
I have even made a new place to put my butterflies and moths, thank goodness you can have as many blogs as you want on blogger.
part of this proses has meant I have been looking at these places with fresh eyes, sometimes finding new things along the way.
The "Footballer" hoverfly on a pink Yarrow.
A Small Heath butterfly blown in the wind.
Small green caterpillars with a white stripe, still not sure who they will be...
At the moment I am reading "A buzz in the meadow" by Dave Goulson, the most wonderful book, so to day I had a closer look at some bees at the park.

A rather raggedy Meadow Brown Butterfly took to resting on the thistle out of the wind.
There is talk on the weather that it might not rain to night,
so I'm of to set up the moth trap.
If you wish you can take a look at my lists, no need to comment, but it just means you can see so far what's going on in these places. I still have many photos to go through.
