    Photos 2 Munchers.

    2 Munchers today, the wife found them on a decimated rhubarb leaf in the garden. Thought there was just one to begin with (the big green one) then spotted the little fuzzy bugger underneath too. All 6 are different photos.

    Cheers Supe. You're in the Garden of England they reckon. I bet there's loads of bugs if you look hard enough. I walk around my patch with my head DOWN! LOL..

    Last time I walked round my little garden with my head down I walked into a tree LOL..
    I do try to get to my daughters as she has many more flowers and you really need plenty of them to bring the little buggers in..

    Supe - my garden is really quite small, and I get the vast majority of my bugs pics there. A few in the front garden, but only about 1 in every 100 out the front I reckon:

    I guess it's about what you have planted attracting the bugs. . .the water must help. . .

    There are no "specially selected plants as far as I know m8. Agapanthus in the pot, rose bush, laurel shrub (gets plenty on the leaves), apple tree, clematis, spirea hiding in the corner, a few daffs or tulips sometimes, crocosmia (when it flowers), a few annuals like poppy and such. The pond is about 3 feet long and may help a little I suppose.

    So as you can see, fairly common flowers, and nothing like enough really. But I get a decent amount of bugs, though I suspect Ian Clark has a better range of plants in his plot.
