Beautiful Karen!

Thank you, Lil!:))
Do you call these 'firebugs'? I'm infested with them but they don't seem to do any harm...

Too decorative for a stag beetle I expect.Are they only in the garden?

31 Aug, 2011

 

Yes, thankfully! And all over the hollyhocks, malva and blue sage...Quite often 'stuck together', if you know what I mean...
I think they just eat the seeds, though...
That's a hollyhock seedpod it's on

Wow!
Does Gendarme translate to POLIS!!!

31 Aug, 2011

 

Aye! Armed Polis! Not, 'afloat in a dirty big boat!!)' though...
(hope you get this, Scottish...otherwise I'll have to remember more Andy Stewart....)
