Time to Observe

Leave a comment

I have been taking time out over the last few days to observe what is going on in my garden. I posted some photos of some of the selection of flowers I have available for my fussy honey bees, one of which I identified from a post by Fodrambler entitled “Great Mullein and the Mullein Moth”. I didn’t have Mullein moths on my plant but, when I went back to look at it, a quite impressive Longhorn Beetle was sitting there on one of the leaves so I took a photo of it and here it is…

Male Red Longhorn Beetle - Leptura Rubra

Male Red Longhorn Beetle – Leptura Rubra

Quite uncommon in the UK apparently only recorded in Breckland, Norfolk until fairly recently.

Uncommon or not, he is very welcome in my garden:)
