Macro on Monday - Guess What

gold starI will agree that last week one of the pictures did make it look like a ladybird. It was actually a butterfly - a Small Tortoiseshell. This was correctly guessed by Jan and Ragged Robin who gain the virtual gold stars with an honourable mention to TexWisGirl and Adrian who got the butterfly but the wrong type. As always my thanks to all who took part.

On to a new 'macro', actually a small crop from a larger photograph.
Guess What:


Clue: Penny says it grunts instead of snuffling.
No prizes. Just for fun.

This morning I could see five eggs in the Great Tit nestbox. There will probably be one or two more then Mrs GT should start incubating them. That will be more interesting to watch, especially as they start to hatch and the male brings in food for all of them. At the moment it seems to be an empty nest for most of the day.

On the Hedgehog front - The regular, I assume, visited the night before last but was not spotted last night. Also it looks as though a mouse has taken up residence under the summer house, or at least uses it as a safe haven at night for raiding the hedgehog food.


  1. It looks like a dog toy. A knitted Hedgehog maybe.

  2. i would guess a stuffed hedgehog for penny?


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
