Skev's picture

And I am not referring to cattle.

Whilst there are many things I am yet to see, longhorn beetles generally are good to see and of these I was hoping to see Anaglyptus mysticus in particular this year. I was therefore well chuffed to sweep one off of hawthorn locally on Friday late afternoon. Whilst very compliant for a photo, it would happily sit still on anything but hawthorn .......

Like all such things, having seen one for the first time on Friday evening I nipped out to another local site on Saturday morning and found one without trying out in the open on a bramble bush. Damned fine it was too!
