Just for Ade...

By NDODS    
A range of butterflies, bugs, and beasties which have to name. Please feel free to provide them with a name in order that I may identify them in the future.

Regards Nathan.

With reference to yesterdays panned seaside outing, it went somewhat pear shaped, I had a few seizures, and to cap it all off my regular carer had an equally bad day. Today did not start off too bad, however as the hours have passed it has steadily got worst. I've not only had the odd bout of madness, but I have also being to upload a series of photographs for the good Ade, and the rest of you great people to put names to these little chaps. It is 11:42 and I am still no further forwards than I was at 8:30am , however, after hours of struggling I think I have finally cracked it. It amazing what 'Reading the instructions' can do for ones stress levels, and finally completing this rather simple task after all.

And a mention for the presentation, which is brilliant!
So sorry to hear about your setback, anything affecting the brain is scary. My migraines are infrequent but can render me so confused that I have sometimes worried that I might have suffered a mini-stroke. My deepest sympathy, I hope the body's self-mend mode kicks in.

Sorry to hear that you were not so well, Nathan.
An interesting set of images.. I can't tell the names, but it's a great effort to scan them all, I'm sure there are a lot of people would know..
Take care, Nathan. Hope that you will feel better tomorrow.

Some look similar to US species, but I will pass on naming them--others can do it better--- I so love that you kept these old images and shared them with us--

What a wonderful set of natural history images Nathan, this is one of the finest and most diverse selections imaginable. V7 is a small white I think and you've even captured a red tick on the meadow brown in v11.
