Beautiful day today on Highgate Common. got to see a new spider, and also a new fungi (which I’m still waiting for the ID on).
Really sunny and warm November day….
First thing I noticed was this female Kestrel sunning herself!
Yet again one of the Insect Signs produced a photo opportunity, giving me a new Spider species. Although common this is the first time I’ve seen an Invisible Spider (Drapetisca socialis)……
Sulphur Tuft and Candle Snuff fungus….
New Fungi…as yet unidentified, but I do love the beauty of the underside of this fungi….
Yet another Northern Winter Moth.
Although not a new species its the first time I’ve seen this caterpillar, which was a highlight today. Also for me, a late find of a Caterpillar of any sort at the end of November. Love the close up of the head. It was certainly munching away at the Heather. This is a Ruby Tiger (Phragmatobia fuliginosa)….
A Seven Spot Ladybird and a unidentified Spider sharing a bit of the same Heather…
I think I’ve been spotted. Very hard to creep up on a Common Buzzard…..
Really enjoyed my walk today!
