Whilst wandering in the meadow yesterday in search of bugs and beasties I was surprised to find a wild scabious in flower. On further investigation I saw two or three lygaeus equestris, one of which was willing to do a photo shoot with me.
No1 is my fave. A great set.
Another great capture Carol, is that a Small flower or a big bug?

The flower is about 1" in diameter. Carol
In my book that makes for quite a large bug,, but well spotted none the less, my adventures in bug hunting thus far have been limited to flying bugs, and one earwig.

That's quite small for the scabious Carol - we have them growing in a meadow area on the way to work and they are much larger than that.
