Garden watch week 6
Documenting our garden wildlife 1 species at a time while under lockdown in the Uk. It’s getting very difficult now, not only to find a new species every day, but also to photograph it, and name it. You’ll see for day 42 I’ve come up with a complete blank for an ID. Any help would be appreciated if you know what it is. Best guess so far is a Sawfly or an Ichneumon wasp.
Will update if and when I find out
42 days, 42 pictures.
