My Sunday Photo – June 18th, 2017.


Pre-Freya I would have probably run a mile if this thing came near me but her fascination with anything and everything has not only made me curious but also a little bit braver (unless it’s a wasp, then I’m like an olympic sprinter).

I *think* this is a red-headed cardinal beetle (although I’m ready to be corrected).


It took a liking to my father-in-law while we were walking at Cley Marshes recently and spent some time exploring his hand, giving me plenty of opportunity to snap some pics.


I discovered this little one (maybe a green weevil) in Freya’s hair and just thought its face was cute – it reminds me of a dog. What you can’t really see is the gorgeous metallic green colour (it was only about half a centimetre and quite hard to photograph).

To continue bug week, this one one was again taken at Cley Marshes. It is (possibly) a thick-legged flower beetle. Again, a gorgeous metallic colour.


I feel like, by running away from them all these years, I’ve been missing out on some amazing sights. I’ve got a lot to catch up on.

To see if any other bugs have turned up in #MySundayPhoto pics this week please click on the camera below.

Please also pop back tomorrow, if you have a mo, because I have interviewed another wonderful author for my Behind The Book series (this time a writer of children’s books with the Best. Name. Ever).

Wishing you a fabulous week.

  1. Hi Tara, it looks like it was a week for bugs! Some bugs are so pretty to look at and as long as they don’t jump I am happy inspected them. I have no idea what type of bugs you have managed to ‘capture’, I’d just call them very pretty bugs, especially the first two! The last one looks very happy and at home on the flower.



  2. I am really over due a bug hunting session for activity hour with my guests here, there are so many to discover in summer. Your photos are amazing, I love that rich green colour.


  3. Great photos! I thought you were being extremely brave to have one on your hand, so I was kind of relieved to read that it was actually your father-in-law’s hand! I wouldn’t run a mile from these bugs, but I wouldn’t want them on my hand!


  4. Very pretty insects there. I am fascinated by them, although also a little wary after an incident I experienced in the Bolivian Jungle some years ago….but that’s another story!


  5. These bugs are very pretty. It is fascinating to look more closely at them. I’ve been the same with bugs – steering clear of them for years but with the girls being so fascinated by them, I’ve started getting a bit closer and seeing how interesting they are.


    1. It really is! I’m still not sure how I feel about holding a tarantula but I’d be tempted to give it a go now, which is a lot more than previously.


  6. I think the green one has to be my favourite! Wonderful close ups, and well done for your braveness!! #mysundayphoto
