    Wasp, Bee or Hoverfly..??? I did think a wasp or been, but can't quite find a match.

    Thanks Alf for pointing me in the right direction. I did think a bee or wasp, I also think on the 2nd shot the banding from the hairs is a bit deceiving as it makes it look two colours, when most of the body is black.

    Closest match I could find was the Blue Mason Bee, I did see several all investigating the holes in this dead tree.

    EDIT: It looks like it could be ormyrus nitidulus a type of chalcid wasp

    I've had a look of various spider sites but can't seem to find one like this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Could anyone help me with an ID for this dragonfly please? I think it is a female Migrant Hawker with blue markings...

    Thank you in advance :)

    No unfortunately. We were camping on france in the woods and once it started raining we kept finding them everywhere. They didn't have the two black stripes of a German roach so I assumed they are a harmless woodland variety. Hopefully none came home with us.

    You never said it was France!
    Though for England the lesser cockraoch or tawny are possible

    Two tiny bugs I spotted while having a coffee in the garden. Both no more than 5mm long.
    Couldn't get around the other side of this one with the wall and the neighbours garden in the way.

    Thanks Alf, maybe it's troilous luridus. I had no idea the shield/stink bugs started out like this! Never seen these before.

    I think I may have identified these as Liocoris tripustulatus and a common green capsid?

    It's not a spider. It has no venom and does not spin silk and it has a single segment body with only 2 eyes. A Harvestman is is related to spiders but is not one.
