In case you didn't know, also yesterday I spotted a European Dark Bee (Apis mellifera mellifera) - thanks to Dave for confirming the ID - and a photograph of it is in the Insect Identification forum and the Insect Photography Challenge 2011 forum. :bee:

Had a short walk around the begining of the park today.

Plenty of Gnats in groups (not too sure which species or even if they were gnats)
A couple of flesh flies,
But the weather turned and got cloudy and cold.

The white Tailed bumble bee that I photoed in my garden spent the night in a corner of my back door frame but must have left early this morning as the sun rose.

A Large White butterfly flitting around the garden this morning; and a bumblebee travelling at roughly the same speed as an Exocet missile and a more static Seven Spot Ladybird at Dancersend reserve this afternoon.

Today a large number 50-60 in one place (special managed insect area) of 7 spot ladybirds.
Quite a few spiders about in the grass and on sunny side of walls.(only managed to get a couple stand still to photo)
Loads of large to medium size flies (black /green and blue but again too quick)
So its started to look good .
I did note that everything is in speed mode as I couldnt get near much to photo.
Then it got all overcast and a chill in the wind.
