I saw my first butterfly of the year today, a Small Tortoiseshell, unfortunately, could get no photos, as my cat found her before me and chased her away.
This queen wasp, Vespula vulgaris, also first of the year, got in the conservatory.
A Tegenaria with its egg sac on a stilt. It is under the lid of the water butt, so I guess the photo is upside down
A male Anthophora plumipes rests for a few seconds on foxglove leaves.
My cat becomes quite the entomologist when flying insects start to appear. She often alerts me of insects in the garden, but also disturbs them when they try to feed, to my annoyance! Later in the year, she becomes disinterested, and I can relax and watch insects at my leisure.
