Sat under a birch to avoid getting too wet. In addition to a variety of weevils, which I managed to photograph OK, I got a poor pic of a small insect moving up my camera bag. These spikey ones usually turn out to be aphids but I've no idea on this one.
I came across this moth (about 10mm from wing-tip to head-tip on a nettle in south Hampshire on 11.06.20. The closest I could find was Pammene aurita but it doesn't look quite right. Could someone point me towards the right species?
This horsefly was about 20mm in length. I haven't got a key for the Tabanus species. Is it possible to Id this from the two photos?
I thought it might be Large Marsh Horsefly T.autumnalis from a bit of picture matching!
