Insects about!

The ivy is in flower and its heady scent is attracting numbers of bees and a Red Admiral - which would not stay still long enough for a picture!

There are still buttercups to be seen. These were accompanied by a 7-spot ladybird looking for a winter home.

These three were all taken on the footpaths between the bypass and the open field.

                                                          Which one is in danger?

I was looking for a dandelion today to compare with the ox-tongue and hawkbit in the last post. In an hour's walk I only found three - and one of them was on my front lawn when I got home! This one was on the edge of a footpath.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
