Its a big yellow thing Paula, trust me I know these things.

Great large shot you've captured, anyone who knows their maggots will have no problem from that shot, well seen and well taken, (will be checking back to see what it is?) Adrian

It's an immature beetle (i.e. the larvae) of some description. The shape is like a ladybird larvae, although I haven't seen them this colour before.

Hi Paula,
well i guess it's some sort of bug type thingy, hope that helps (-: But one thing's for sure, it's not a Butterfly!
Thanks for the welcome back Paula, that was really nice of you.

I don't know what it is (but a larva seems likely). You have used your macro lens to good effect here.

A ladybird larva? I think! Well spotted and well caught. Haven't seen any ladybirds this year at all and not many last... might have to breed our own! Good catch!
