With it being a bit quiet bird wise in Shetland just now, this has found me focusing my attention on other aspects of our wildlife, mainly bugs. Now although I'm interested in various aspects of nature, 'bugs' have never captured my attention till lately! and I'm not afraid to admit that I know sod all about their names. So please help out if your able...
This first one I recon is the 'Shetland' Bee.
The second individual I'd confidently say is a Red Admiral.
Now the Third one I seem to have photographed both sexes (due to the spots), although are they 'Large' or 'Small' Whites?
And lastly this wee fella seems to be impersonating a Bee of some sort... any guesses? as I really wouldn't know where to start with this one!
Who knows where this road will take me, I might even end up with a moth trap, god help me! (sorry Steve ;) ) http://www.shetlandmisfit.blogspot.com/ Though well done on your 'first' for Shetland!
