Covid-19 lockdown garden species project - Helophilus pendulus hoverfly

Garden watch week 7

Garden watch week 7

7 weeks of documenting our garden wildlife 1 species at a time! So………..I NEVER thought i’d be doing this for so long, and thats my excuse for these pictures getting worse & worse as time goes on. I’m expecting my macro lens back from repair tomorrow (probably afternoon) so if i can get past tomorrow morning with something, anything, then i’ve found enough other little stuff for 1 more week. Possibly. Still waiting for that wren & sparrowhawk to pay a morning visit

49 days, 49 pictures.
