Bits and Pieces from the Garden.

This Hummingbird Hawkmoth was one of two that became stuck in my conservatory. Not had many sightings over the last few years so two on the trot was welcoming.

The Swift numbers during the day were around a dozen at best, but in the evening the numbers would sometimes swell to 30 or so. Of all the days to pick trying to photograph them, I had to pick a windy day where they passed at breakneck speed, the most I captured was sunburn on my back!.

The flowerbeds were attracting a wealth of insects but only the Small Tortoiseshell seemed interested to feed on these miniature sunflowers.
