It has turned so bitterly cold that I have no inclination whatsoever to trawl around the meadow for critters that are obviously hiding from the wind and rain, so another from the archives, a female orange tip resting on a rather unusual seed-head. I hve only ever seen one of these females here, and a sprinkling of males.
UPDATE: Thanks, John (fishiee) for giving me the correct ID
