Half of it has been in full sun and attracting all sorts of flies, bees and beetles. Along side the Malachite beetles and Anapsis, there have been three species of longhorn beetle.
Double figures of the small Grammoptera ruficornis but also several Molorchus minor and today a single individual of Anaglyptus mysticus.
All have been a rather nice distraction from a rather hectic week at work. Rather apt really as we come to the end of Mental Health Awareness Week. The ability to get outside, see some nature and uncouple from a computer goes a long way to combatting the worries and stresses that come with modern living. Plus they're bloody good looking beetles.
