Good morning,
Today a change from butterflies & dragonflies. Here is Stictoleptura rubra, one of our many long horn species.
This was taken on Saturday whilst out butterfly hunting in the big wood. I am very fortunate having this site, I had been looking forward to getting to work in here with my new lens but like everybody else the weather has meant that I had to be patient.
This wood is very large and undisturbed and I fully expect at some time to come across Purple Emperors and if
I am really lucky perhaps Silver washed Fritillary.
Anyway enough of the rambling I'm off to make the most of this summer weather.
Thanks for dropping by.
Colin

Great capture here Colin, the inclusion of the other little bug gives the shot a good sense of scale too......Top class!

An informative pre-narrative, couple to a rather breathtaking image of immense quality.
