Clear for take off…
It just shows, there is no accounting for taste when it comes to choosing a place to hang out!
We’ve spotted a number of these ‘nests’ made by the Oak Processionary Moths in nearby oak trees here in the Netherlands. We’ve never seen them ever before. That’s global warming for you Mr Trump!!!
But, before blaming Mr Trump too much, it looks like we British might be responsible for introducing this particular (and toxic) pest into Europe. More information here.
Butterflies just LOVE bananas!
The Banana Lunch
Do you ever get that feeling you’re hanging on by a thread?
I didn’t notice the ants when taking the photography. Not sure what they’re doing!
Not fruit at all but we were surprised when we found out what it was. Clue: found on an oak tree.
Some images from the forest coming up shortly:
Pssst…might be a moth!
Rule 1: Never show up late (see previous post here)
More insect pornography!
Promiscuous beetles seen today having open air sex. Even threesome sex! What little tinkers they are!
If, as it appears, bees have eyes on the top of their heads. How do they see where they are going?
I could be wrong but I think this is a Red Admiral…
Tom very kindly corrected me. This is not a bee, it’s a hover fly!
Probably one of the best ways to spend an afternoon in the woods…
