Cockchafer

COCKCHAFERDuring my morning perambulation I spotted this fleeting visitor to the garden and just knew I had to share it with you all. I rushed indoors and donned my Lady-Explorers outfit of brown knee-high lace-up boots, long green linen skirt, ecru safari jacket with useful pockets full of useful things, such as, anti-snakebite, string, tweezers, a needle and thread, hard-boiled egg, sketch pad, full boxed set of charcoal pencils,  small Huntley & Palmers biscuit tin in the shape of  a elephant, hip flask and small metal tumblers,binoculars and collecting bag not forgetting my hat with the mosquito netting. I was ready. Now never let it be said I am not up with technology I grabbed my I-Pad and with never a thought for my safety ventured out to take this photograph.

Ronald I am sorry to say was nowhere to be seen. The minute I told him I had identified the beetle as a ‘Cockchafer’ he thrust his hands down the front of his trousers and ran. Silly Ronald.

Yours Exploringly
