Sunday Bugs

A walk around the garden this morning to access what I need to do today after the heat of yesterday reveals plenty of work and evidence of the wildlife munching on my plants.

Here’s who was in my garden today … (Click to enlarge. Apologies for the quality of some of the photos – I’m still learning how to use the macro lens).

[one_half]Ugg, whats that?[/one_half]

[one_half_last]Eating my Lilies[/one_half_last]

[one_half]A friendly fly[/one_half]

[one_half_last]Ok, he's welcome![/one_half_last]

I’m not keen to kill everything that is eating my plants. Aphids … those I have to zap (and white fly etc), the cutworms have to go and those that decimate my Lilies? Sorry guys, not on my turf!

But beetles and caterpillars? I think they all serve a purpose in the garden so i’m leaving them be. I hope they enjoyed the lunch!
