Just catching up with some of the photos I took over the past couple of weeks mostly insects and heading for a Seawatch recently my first Wheatear of the Autumn on the headland of Seaton Sluice . Insects do catch my eye more so as I look for Dragonflies that are perhaps resting on trees or bushes ,this was the case of the black and yellow one which I noticed flitting around low through the vegetation I immediately thought it was some form of Wasp and spend about 20 minutes trying to get a shot to no avail, but I then picked one out elsewhere doing the same motion and finally one resting in the open , it was quickly I.D.but not as wasp but a true fly ,most of the insects I seem to find remain un identified but I still enjoy the challenge of trying to photograph them
Edit Thanks to NZ1982 for the I.D. of this smart little beast as a Shield Bug Troilus luridus which seems to be in the final Instar stage of three before reaching adult . Check out the blog NZ1982 he seems to constantly find something of interest, and probably a lot of birds you have seen over the years at East Chevington etc are down to him .
