Solstice snakes etc

We took advantage of a bit of sun to go out on 21 June in search of reptiles near Peterborough. We recorded: 2 Adders, 6 Grass Snakes, 7 Slowworms, 12 Common Lizards and some nice plants and insects. Here are some piccies.
Male Adder
Bee Orchid
Burnet Companion
Grass Snake which judging from its slightly misty eye is starting to think about sloughing
Grizzled Skipper
Bumblebee mimicking hoverfly, which I think is Volucella bombylans
