After the Rain

Monday, August 22nd 2016

This morning was very wet indeed at Foxglove. We had plenty of indoor jobs to keep us busy though, so we made a good start on those without the temptation to go outside. Elizabeth had been planning a guided walk, and was busy contemplating what she should show people in the pouring rain.

At lunchtime however, the clouds parted and we were left with a sunny and blustery afternoon. The guided walk was enjoyed by all. After the rain the insects came out. Here are just a few that we found in the orchard.

A Common Darter Dragonfly

A Green Veined White Butterfly that obligingly came to Roger for a photograph

A slightly tattered Meadow Brown Butterfly

A couple of very different looking bees- Probably a type of Carder Bee (the ginger one) and a Garden Bumblebee.
