Lunch at The Ivy

Not the London restaurant, but a clump of ivy in the Memorial garden, now in flower and attracting insects of all shapes and sizes.

The Hornets (above) were the most impressive diners today - they were about an inch long but seemed fairly docile and allowed a relatively close approach with the camera.

More about Hornets here.
