Anyone know what this is?
That looks like a giant wood wasp that is not a wasp but a sawfly.
One to look at, been looking at this or an ichneumon maybe?
Looks like a Nokia...
Samsung I think.
Here is a live one they are about 40 mm long

Looks like a Nursery Web Spider to me (Pisaura mirabilis)
Thanks Tim, that would also explain a lot of little ones in a seperate web too after looking at pics on google.
Rubbish phone picture, but anyone know what this is ?
Yes Igrid, it is a dragonfly larva. Looks like it has already broken free and flown off.
Cheers Alby, thought it might be but not hatched, loads of dragonflies about so hope to get back later in the week with a proper camera,
it might still be there
Can someone please help me get started into Bee/Wasp identification with an ID for this one please?
OK- Now sorted - I was on the wrong track as it's a Hover Fly

Is this just a normal wasp? It's body shape looked different.
Yeah that is wasp and it is collecting wood to make paper.
Could you hear it chewing?
Yeah a hover fly an Eristralis SP I think. Possibly Eristralis Tenax.
Yep, its amazing how loud they are when all the surroundings went quiet. Thanks for the confirmation,
Sorry for the poor pic, sure I have seen one before but can't think which moth it is
Looks like the Clouded Border (Lomaspilis marginata).
A hawkmoth of some sort here, but not sure which one
Popular hawk moth.
Thank you Alby
Really must get myself a good book on insects..

226/366 2016 - Bug by fishyfish_arcade, on Flickr
Had a bit of a spontaneous bug watch and my daughter wants to know what they were, so any ids would be greatly appreciated all of these are mobile pics so sorry for the quality of them.
Leaf Beetle ?
Not sure about the first. Think the next two are honey bees. The last is a sawfly.
The first is a moth Chris
Err yes - but what one.
Well, if you were going for "bees" and "a sawfly" I figured you could get away with "a moth"
Can anyone ID this Weevil...I have loads living on the Jasmines in the garden.
It's about 4mm long
Sorry for the rubbish pics.
Viburnum leaf beetle?
Can anyone ID this for me please
Not sure beyond the fact I reckon it is parasitic wasp.
Similiar to Ceutorhynchus pallidactylus
Spider ID required please from the garden this afternoon.

I have done some Googling and found that it is not a spider. As far as I can find it is a Northern European Harvestman. Must say that's a first for me.
Yeah it is a harvestman and you are right it is not a spider.
It even has all 8 legs.
Any ideas what this is maybe 3mm long
