No.271 - There's no shortage of amorous Red-soldier beetles at the moment, but here's one you might not have seen. This is Silis ruficollis, a localised Cantharis which is currently confined to the far southern ends of Wales and England. It prefers damp habitats near water, such as reedbeds. ::: #500species2018 #SilisRuficollis #SoldierBeetle #Cantharidae #silinae #coleoptera #beetlesofbritain #ukwildlife #bbcnature #hertsinvertproject #ukladybirds #kingsmeads #hertswildlife #hertfordshire #entomology #naturewatch #naturesvoice #britishnature #beetlewatch #canon #naturelovers #buglife #wildlifephotographer #macrointhewild #buglife #beetle #escarabajo ::: @hertswildlifetrust @danasawusrex

A female common blue (I think, ID help gratefully accepted!) roosting atop a thistle. We came across her whilst volunteering for @wild.london in a reserve in #kidbrooke Currently we are restoring a section to vital meadow habitat to encourage other wonderful invertebrates like this butterfly. 🦋

How do you know we're in Alberta?? #bugs #buglife #skipsupper #yum
