Bugs




These pesky shieldbugs are still at it, sunbathing away on top of the poppies.

I spent quite a while watching them this lunchtime, and I'm pretty sure that's all they're doing. They didn't appear to be feeding or interacting, despite the fact that they often congregated on the same poppies.

  • Big thanks to Fiona for lending her bug identification know-how - these are Sloe Bugs, Dolycoris baccarum
