I had only about 10 minutes for my photography session this evening, so I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at my memory card later on.
It took me about 20 minutes to get an identification for this wonderful Leaf Beetle, Chrysolina staphylea.
It's about the same size as a 7-spot Ladybird.
The Orange Tips were roosting for the night. This one's on unfurling Broad Buckler fern :
And this brought a smile to my face. These are the micromoth Micropterix calthella on the bud of Creeping Buttercup. Micropterix calthella feed on Buttercups all summer, and this is the first local flower of the year. They just cannot wait for opening time tomorrow morning.
