Beetles & Trees

Skippers, Whites and Blues 234

On one of the very narrow lanes that I cycle along there have been some rather large trees cut down and now there’s a whole minature forest of what I assume to be aspens as there are many aspens in this region.

It took the unsuccessful pursuit of a dragonfly to get me to down to the right level to notice quite a large number of these Poplar Leaf Beetles milling about in this tiny woodland…at first I was more into their colouration and the way the light caught it against the algae background…but when I uploaded the images onto my PC, I was totally amazed when I saw their intricate lattice-work feet… 😎
