This gorgeous wee goldcrest pal has been fluttering around my window for 15 minutes, munching on tiny bugs and the like. I was worried they got stuck behind my window box so I went outside, moved it aside a little and took this photo. They seem chill enough
Met this pal on the way home from work last night. He eventually deigned to get off the road and wandered into this driveway. That’s a giant thicket of briars and whatnot caught in his antlers. Accidental accoutrements or the latest fashion for every discerning red deer? Who knows…
Reckon it was a purposeful style choice
I like to think so
Made a new pal this morning.
It did some good head bopping:
I hate those bloody things. Haven’t had one in my bedroom since I bought a fly screen in the spring, however their season is on the way so maybe they’ll come under the door at some point.
Blimey. I reckon some moisturising cream might be beneficial.
Not a grasshopper but close! I think that’s a female bush cricket, oak bush cricket I think?
Tbf, he (she?) didn’t do much hopping
Fairly confident it’s a she, that pointy ‘tail’ is what she lays her eggs with
