Weevil Wasp

Facing off on the flowers of a wild carrot plant with an ant. Who will back down first?

I had some difficulty identifying this fellow but with a little external assistance pinned it down as a ‘Weevil Wasp’ … a future contributor to the 1000 Species Project when I have done some more reading up on them.

A Wet Summer’s Evening

Interesting Light in the Garden

Photographers often sing the praises of “the golden hour” at sunset or “the blue hour” just after and they are worth making use of. However, I often find that to my eye, maybe not yours, the really interesting light is in the middle of a heavy shower of rain when there are no shadows, the light is diffused and the colours of flowers positively glow.

  • Camera: DSC-RX10M3
  • Exposure bias: -7/10EV
  • Focal length: 14.7mm
  • ISO: 1250
