Underneath a Tiger!

Came down this morning to find this Jersey Tiger on the patio door window so got this unusual shot. Then this afternoon got a first for the garden when this Wall Brown flew past me, found the only stone next to the back lawn and perched up just long enough to get my first and only shot of this species, before disappearing over the back hedge.

Home garden

This female Grey Bush - Cricket leapt in through the front door this morning probably to escape the showers, thunder & lightning  After capture released it straight away on the front lawn!

In my Collins Pocket Guide to Insects of Britain & Western Europe it says 'one of several very similar species, often difficult to separate'.

27-07-18 Roborough Down

Nothing much on the down today, the usual suspects, Linnets, Yellowhammers, Stonechats, in the way of other wildlife I came across some Greyling Butterflies, one having a battle with an ant (as seen in the photo), hence the ant won and the Greyling flew off.
