Summer is here

Summer is here now, which means it is unbearably hot. However, we have been lucky that it has not been hot until this week.

There have been plenty of bugs about. Here are a few pictures taken over the past few weeks.

On a random drive around we discovered a rocket tower.

Around the base of the tower were hundreds of caterpillars and a few butterflies. The caterpillars were really cute so I took too many pictures of them.

The butterflies were pretty too.

There have been a couple of nice beetles in our garden recently.

There were many of these all over this bush. They were all in the same pose!

On a recent day out, we came across a snake basking in the sunshine.

And some butterflies doing the same.

Although this weather is good for seeing insects, I am looking forward to when it starts to cool down a little. Hopefully the heat won’t last too long.
