It's a great time of year for insects!

These ladybirds along the John Muir Walkway in Musselburgh have plenty to eat with all those aphids!

And I was delighted to get really good views of two burnet moths, I think they're probably narrow bordered five spot burnets but if you know otherwise, please let me know in the comments

I especially love seeing the thistle. Lovely pics!

Hello, pretty shots of the insects. Have a great day and week ahead!

Pretty moths! Hard to believe the thistle is already blooming.

Those are moths? I would have never guessed. They are too pretty to be moths! :-)

Greetings from London.

Thanks for your comments everyone!

Cuban - there are a lot of very pretty moth species, but they're generally harder to see than butterflies and of course many of them are nocturnal so we don't tend to see them at all. The burnet moths though are daytime moths and quite common in some places

Good to see so much life by the Forth, along John Muir's path
