My health has taken a bit of a tumble lately and as a result I haven't been up to much.
But it's not difficult to become involved in the Wild Pollinator Count. I'm endeavouring to do this as often as I can in the time frame.
If you're in Australia you may want to take part too. You've got until the 22nd of November.
Taking photographs of your finds is optional but I managed one or two not-too-bad captures today so here they are. (Bearing in mind I used my point and shoot camera.)
I chose a large stem of elder flower from which to make my observation.
I spotted a fly (there was a second much smaller fly too)
and a European honey bee as well as some unidentifiable insects that reminded me of midges; and what looked like a pintail beetle which was too swift for me to even begin to take a photo.
It's nice to see the sun shine after weeks of wet stormy weather but the prediction is for heat wave conditions with temperatures in the low forties.
