Priory Country Park

A quick evening visit to Priory Country Park following the rain was reasonably productive:

A male scorpion fly (only the male has the "scorpion" tail). It is possible to determine the species by looking at this tail, but I didn't try on this occasion.

A fresh Mother Shipton day-flying moth, unwilling to pose where there wasn't a grass-stem shadow playing across it :-(

A lot of beetle grubs (Dock Beetle?) turning a dock into a skeleton.

An arty shot of a Small Tortoiseshell caterpillar feeding on nettle, one of many seen in one patch.

A roosting mayfly trying for a second day as an adult(?)
