I know the top one is a Privet Hawk Moth, are there any Moth experts on here that could confirm the bottom one? Is it a Convolvulus Hawk Moth? 😀🙏🏻🤞🏻 I hope so. I think they are quite a rare immigrant?

Unfortunately this beautiful bee met his demise, but it was a perfect opportunity to see him up close without running for my life. I’m fascinated at all the intricate detailing. What type of bee is he?

So on Wednesday I took a rather impromptu trip to Nosterfield nature reserve to take part in Chris Packham's nationwide Bioblitz... and ended up meeting the man himself! What an inspiration! I thoroughly recommend taking part when the bioblitz comes round again! Credit goes to @lucy_white_photography for the photos (although the poplar hawk moth and last photo are mine). Swipe along to see some of the moths (poplar and elephant hawkmoths as well as six spot burnet) we recorded and the total number of species recorded at the end of the day! #bioblitz #nosterfieldbioblitz #chrispackhambioblitz2018 #chrispackham #speciescount #poplarhawkmoth #moths #birds #mammals #insects #plants #takepart #featured_insects #insectsofinstagram #speciesrecording #mothtrapping #elephanthawkmoth

Insta friends! A little help?! We've been saving seeds and letting them dry on a little dish outside under shelter. Sitting out enjoying our tea this morning, we noticed a wasp taking some interest in the Borage seeds... We totally weren't expecting it to then pick one up and fly off with it!! We've been watching closely and it's now stolen 8 seeds and counting... Our big question is why?! We've never seen this before! Any ideas what could be happening here? #🐝
