Re: Bugboys mission

I would have commented on your Green Hairstreaks Buggy as you've got some really nice images there but that female Blue is incredible - surely has to be an ab. but gorgeous anyway. Never seen anything like it!

Re: Pauline

Given the size, markings and colouration, it certainly is an impressive insect Maurice and I was delighted to find it in the trap. If it's likely to be another 10 years before you get another one I sincerely hope you'll be in touch again before then! :wink: :D You may well be too late Buggy! What a ...

Re: Pauline

Morning Maurice Thank you for the ID's - much appreciated. I did look at one of my books but I am sat here with a fractured tooth waiting for a dental appointment later today and finding concentration difficult! Anyway, when I released her about 9.30pm last night, I pointed her in your direction and...

Re: Pauline

Thank you Dave. Your comment caused me to cast my mind back to the (very) few butterflies I saw when growing up in a very industrial area of shipbuilding and mining. By far the most common was the Large White, followed by Small Tortoiseshell and Red Admiral. How did you know I'd be trying to do that...

Re: Padfield

Your beautiful butterfly images overwhelm me a little Guy but I am fascinated by the immature stages you post. Are you following any specific White Admiral this season? I only ask as for a few years now I have thought they must move away from the Honeysuckle to pupate - surely all the ones I have fo...

Re: Pauline

First off, I do believe the name of those green beetles is CRYPTOCEPHALUS AUREOLUS. How I couldn't manage to remember that I really don't know as it just trips off the tongue :wink: :lol: Cheers Wurzel - that Painted Lady really made my day. Just hope it's the first of many. If you're reading this P...

Re: millerd

Great shots of the egg-laying Dave (mind, you're getting plenty of practice recently :wink: :lol: ). I know from personal experience how difficult it is to record this on camera. Not only do you have to be observant enough to recognise the egg-laying is happening in the first place (not entirely eas...

I agree with Trevor. Opinions expressed on many shots are frequently subjective but nothing subjective about those GS images. Smashing shots :D :mrgreen:

Aren't they just, David! Best time to see them imo :D I could do with a bit of magic myself Buggy :) After 8 hours with the plumbers yesterday I just had to get out - anywhere! I hadn't been to Paulsgrove for quite some time. Initially I was wary of this site having had a couple of bad experiences h...

Re: Holly Blues - egg-laying on diverse plants

Excellent behavioural shots there Dave - really interesting stuff and great observations (almost missed it as not in your PD). Last year when I was watching GH egg-laying I saw HB egg-laying on both Dogwood and BFT - I haven't seen them do it on anything else. I shall have to start taking more notice.

Re: Pauline

Every cloud has a silver lining ........ I'd been looking forward to spending time with Goldie at the weekend but as that was not to be I decided to get on and remove the 15' fig tree that had died at the side of the house. Having cleared all the weeds, sawed it down, dug out the roots, cleared the ...

Re: Bugboys mission

Your diary is always of interest Buggy. I am impressed at you finding PH larva in the wild - something I have not yet managed despite having a colony in the garden. Happy I was able to help tho and reassuring to see it at the same stage as my captive ones. If you visit again before it pupates I'd lo...

Hi Peter, if you are quick to delete photos then I need you round here as I have thousands which I should have deleted but can't seem to bring myself to :roll: :lol: Thank you for your comment.
