Lockdown Diary: Monday 27.7.20

Gloomy and rainy outside, today. I popped into the garden to see what was going on, though. Meadow Brown butterfly flopping around was the best I could get. But there was a cool little ‘crane fly’ on the vegetation in the pond. I tried to photograph it and this was the best I could do.

I suspect it may be called Dictenidia bimaculata, but I wonder if the number of spots on the window still falls into the range of variability of that species (which, as the name suggests usually has two spots per wing).
