So I did manage to be out when it wasn't blowing a gale or raining but warm enough for a few things to show.

Great set Lester and glad you have started to get some bugs.

Looks like the Bee-fly has been gathering dusty dirt ready for egg dropping.

Lester. Between you, LV, Dalantech and so many others I'm strongly reminded I live in an insect desert==you all are always posting insects I've never seen.
Love the bee-fly, amazing creature well captured. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Linda, yes she was exhibiting that egg laying behavour flight just before the shot.

I was planning to get out and shoot some BFs etc this weekend but came down with some mild infection making all the joints ache; anyoingly the weather is back to grotty this week.
