Maternity ward

aphids

Seeing this, one can understand why greenfly are public enemy number one in the garden. The aphid’s latest ‘baby’ has not even dropped to join its siblings yet, but another baby is already being pushed out.  And the aphid ‘mum’ is feeding at the same time.  Way to multi-task!

Over at The Shed Gallery blog today I am discussing some of my favourite images by other Shed creatives.  And not a greenfly in sight, I promise.

    • Thanks, Helen. Seems we were thinking along similar lines yesterday. Co-incidentally,again, I was reading an article about the Stratford butterfly farm over lunch yesterday. The article was about the outdoors planting for summer native butterflies. Did you manage to photograph any of those?
