250 Species since 1st June

It's been a bit slow lately, due to family and work commitments.  Also the dry weather seems to have kept things somewhat quiet in the garden.  However there's still been plenty to see, especially butterflies and hoverflies.  Here's a few snaps of random visitors to the microEden garden.  The slug appeared after our first rain in weeks, my first non-Asian ladybird, a new generation of beautiful mint moths are all over the lavender, a resting meadow brown butterfly in the bamboo and a variety of hoverflies on the Golden Rod.  I still need to fully get to grips with the bees and hoverflies as there are several present that I didn't yet identify.
