A sunny but windy day, +12° C. Been to Wimbledon Common.
Adela cuprella longhorn moths are flying among flowering sallows:
At last found Tachina ursina! I’ve been checking Sallow blossoms all the time without seeing one. But finally got successful today!
Upd: These are actually T. lurida!
Plenty of those bees on Sallows, still to be identified:
Anthophora plumipes female, one of the most skittish bees I know, really hard to shoot:
Otherwise, usual stuff. Andrena haemorrhoa female:
Could this be its male?
Andrena cineraria fly in truckloads! In fact, males seeking females make it hard to shoot other bees, as they try to grab anything that looks like a bee!
Lots of cuckoo bees. This could be Nomada goodeniana:
N. flava, perhaps:
One of the red species:
Other Andrena spp.:
Harlequin Ladybird (Harmonia axyridis):
Birch Catkin Bug (Kleidocerys resedae):
Lypha dubia are numerous:
Oak starts to flower:
