Camas nan Geall Insects

We were at a very green Camas nan Geall in brilliant sunshine this afternoon to do some work on the archaeological sites but, as always, were distracted by other things, particularly the insects.

It was great to have the year's first sighting of a painted lady, looking a bit sorry for herself after a winter's hibernation, and....

 ....what the Raptor was certain was a 'heath' of some kind and, being the Raptor, he was quite right: he later identified it as a small heath.

This beetle became very friendly with one of the party, repeatedly landing on her until it was quite sure a good picture had been taken. It's a bracken or garden chafer.
