Small white, bee, balls

This and that.. getting exciting now! Was hoping to get past 850 at the weekend but see note on moth walk!

Some lovely earth balls in the grounds of the chapel of the Earls of Moray - a small ruined building hidden between houses and surrounded by mostly uninteresting grass.



Fife's newest bee - Lasioglossum albipes



and the ironic award of the year - the only lep added from a nocturnal walk goes to ... several Small Whites roosting in grass. Easy to see at night though!.


I've gone back and forth on this knotgrass. It could be even-leaved or it could be just a little one. I may need a consultant.


Oh! I almost forgot! The amazing foreleg of Curtonotus convexiusculus. Straight out the pages of a Warhmammer bestiary.
