Garden watch week 11
A picture a day from our garden in Sussex, UK. Each day a different animal and the picture taken before noon. If you haven’t been following, I originally decided to do this as a way of relieving lock down boredom & give me something to do. I also thought i’d get around 30 species, how wrong I was! Up to day 77 now & there’s only a couple of regulars I haven’t managed to photograph yet, so who knows, maybe this will be the last complete week?
77 days, 77 pictures.
Day 71 – Longhorn beetle (Rutpela maculata)
Day 72 – Large skipper butterfly (Ochlodes sylvanus)
Day 73 – Tetragnatha extensa spider
Day 74 – Hairy shieldbug (Dolycoris baccarum)

Day 76 – Sicus ferrugineus fly
