Bugs in the Bay

A small selection of the insects I photographed in the bay last month.

As June is relatively quiet on the birding front I decided to focus on bugs and botany. I also thought I would upload records to the iRecord database.

After hours searching the internet I came to the conclusion that this was 'Coastal Silver-Stiletto Fly', (Acrosathe annulata). I duly added it to the database but got a rather sarcastic comment about my identification. So I've decided not to report any more observations to iRecord.

Dark Green Fritillary

Red Admiral

Meadow Brown

(Eristalis intrcarius)

Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnet

Four-spotted Chaser
(Great to see but unable to photograph three Emperor Dragonflies at the same spot.)

Small Tortoiseshell

Beautiful China-mark
