Spring is springing and bees are buzzing but so are a number of other insects. If only in a quieter and more modest way.

I love this intricate, lace like camouflage on the under wing of this orange tip butterfly.

It is difficult to see but this crane fly has positioned its body vertically and is pushing its tail into the soft mud on the pathway to lay its eggs.

Almost inconspicuous, a tiny pollen beetle is enjoying a springtime treat on this beautiful dandy lion flower head.

There are no hidden insects in this sanicle. I just love these tiny cauliflower like heads as they emerge.
