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.
