Bees collecting pollen from garden Sunflower.




Cinnabar Moth caterpillars feeding on Common Ragwort. The plant is poisonous and gives protection to the caterpillars when they eat it so that predators avoid them. The bright yellow and black stripes are warning colours to ward off potential predators.

An Orb-Web Spider. Probably a Lobed Argiope (Argiope lobata). Just below the spider is a zig-zag-shaped silk decoration known as a stabilimentum. This is highly characteristic to this genus of spiders. The function of the stabilimentum is much debated, but so far remains unknown.
