    Photos Giant Willow aphids and photobombing wasps!

    What was meant to be a few photos of Giant Willow Aphids, became a 100 photo session with them and a group of six wasps that gate-crashed (photobombed?) the party. This post shows just 15, but I had a great time watching and snapping away! I couldn't get too close with all them buzzing around my head - I was leaning into a salix shrub!

    They are fascinating - more interesting than the green ones on my roses!


    They also seemed to have piqued a bit of interest for a late ladybird larva (Asian/Harlequin I think)...
