New for the patch...

It's not often I see anything new on my patch. After all, it's just a small patchwork of intensively farmed agricultural fields that are sprayed to death and devoid of many common plants and insects. So when I had three new insects on the patch in the last 10 days, it was something of a miracle!

Aeshna mixta: R. Harris

Wall butterfly: R. Harris
Sympetrum striolatum: R. Harris

Not new to patch but a few very large Araneus diadematus now around:

A face only a mother could love!
