I love it when you see bees hiding like that!

Love the snail -- in full battle gear, out to seek his fortune in the great wide world! And, again, so impressed with your knowledge of the hoverflies.

Love the photos. You either have a very quick shutter on your camera or some very cooperative insects! lol

Lovely photos of discoveries on your walk in nture. I´m impressed you know the Latin name of the hover fly, I only know Latin plant names, insects are to difficult for me.

Hi Eileen - I love the snail too!

Simon - me too, there were several of them doing it too when it wasraining!

Janneke - most hoverflies don't have common names! I am slowly learning their Latin names helped by the UK Hoverfly Facebook group!
