Blanzay is looking a bit battered, a lot of the Sunflowers are just black and the greenery looks yellow at this time of year. Added to that the fungal box tree caterpillar is killing a lot of hedges. But I still like to wander around with the camera.
There are a lot of insects that visit our garden, mainly bees, but also dragonflies are reasonably common. Spiders are to be found everywhere. Below you will find a few of my images. As well as dragonflies, bees and spiders there are a couple of moth caterpillars, hover fly, a moth, butterfly and a very annoying fly.
