Blue Monday: Grub’s Up Kids!
Travel Theme: Transformation (Gallery of Butterfly Metamorphosis)
What could better illustrate Transformation than the life-cycle of a butterfly? This is the metamorphosis of Papillio memnon, lowi Druce and rumanzovia, all types of Swallowtail and Mormon Butterflies, as seen at the Butterflies In The Glasshouse event at RHS Wisley Gardens.
So I’m actually really tolerant of most invertebrates. There’s only one that I really hate and that’s the mosquito. Nothing could ever persuade me to photograph a mosquito!
We’ve got a dreadful infestation of Sawfly in our communal gardens and they’re wrecking my beautiful roses. They’ve been sprayed several times with no discernible effect. I’ve been out squishing larvae and adults everyday, but still they multiply! Help!
I can stand to look at the adult Flesh Fly, they’re really quite pretty, the larvae though, gross!
