Insects in Garden

The weekend saw many butterflies and Bumblebees (including Tree Bee Bombus hypnorum, a new one!) in the garden, the lavender bush had 10+ Small Whites on it at once, also present were Large White (1), Peacock, Comma, Red Admiral, Gatekeeper and Speckled Wood. Dusk again brought many Silver Y moths everywhere!

Peacock.

They always look a bit unreal they are so gorgeous!

Small White.

Probably Bombus terrestris?

Tree Bee. Bombus hypnorum

B.hypnorum is new to the garden AFAIK… although I have recollections of them from last year but no notes!!

Plus to keep a birdy note… the Blackbirds are on brood 3.
