Photographic catch-up

Time in the field has been reduced of late, and my mind is largely elsewhere, so here are a few snapshots of inverts that have come my way rather than having been hunted down.

Privet Hawk-moth, Banstead. My second in the garden this summer.

Waved Black, Banstead. A smart moth, not annual here.

Scorched Wing, Banstead. I don't see too many of these moths, and hadn't noticed the purple staining on the underwing before.

Rose Chafer, Banstead Downs. I hadn't seen this large beetle until last month, now another comes along. Smart!

Stag Beetle, Banstead. This female was wandering along the pavement outside our house.

I remember Stag Beetles from my childhood in Banstead, it's a very long time since I've seen one.

Very smart camera work Steve. Have seen a couple of female stag beetles wandering the streets of South Sutton this week.
