DISCLAIMERI am a photographer, not an entomologist. I do my best to have professionals assist in identifying the subjects of my photographs. However, positive identifications can not always be done unless the specimen is dead and viewed under a microscope. If you do find an error, or have doubts about the identification provided, please let me know in the comments or by email.

Buglife in the U.K. have initiated a call-out for a Pollinator Pledge. What can you do to to help save bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other pollinators? One way is in your garden: remove lawn, stop using pesticides and add more flowering trees, shrubs and perennials (preferably native). You’ll be doing a good thing to help sustain wild bee populations.
