To outline just how unbothered I am about butterflies, that's only my 44th British species.
I do like a good Marbled White though, and there were three or four knocking about on the plateau but catching up with one as they rested for seconds was harder work than it was probably worth!
Hoverflies were notable today, with Scaeva pyrastri in the garden and Volucella pellucens at the Embankment. Both of those evaded the camera, but I got these ....
Volucella zonaria - an absolute beast of a hoverfly
Episyrphus balteatus - several in the garden today
Syrphus ribesii s.l. - female with predomninantly yellow hid femur
Syrphus vitripennis s.l. - female with part black hind femur
Not a hover - Green Shieldbug nymph
The garden moths traps were back out last night, and there was a fairly decent catch. I'll post a few moth photos another day apart from this one - still enjoy seeing this in the garden, and still can't believe it was extinct as a British species just over a decade ago!
