Clematis integrifolia, a non climbing clematis.
I´ve never seen any hymenopteras looking like this one sitting on a Aralia flower.
The wings are torn and it´s close to th end for this butterfly. It didn´t even care that I came close. Otherwise this one is really hard to get a photo with its wings open like this.
I walked on those places I knew there would be lots of flies, but no not a single one. I had forgotten how it felt walking around without the mosquito hat on in the forest :-) :-) They all come at the same time, so perhaps they go out of this life together too? I can´t remember this happening during these soon eleven years I´ve been living here. But I talked with my neighbor and she said it happened from time till time. I so hope they have all died :-) :-) :-) If so there´s only the awful Moose fly left, but they won´t start for yet a couple of weeks (I tell You more about them when they arrive).
The European Peacock. We call it Peacock eye here in sweden.
All potatoes I planted has managed to survive all the rain we´ve had these last weeks. They grow fast and need to do so if I´m going to get any potatoes :-)
But there were a lot of dragon flies and butterflies flying around instead. I must say that they weren´t especially cooperative when it came to take photos of them, but I did manage to take photos of two of them anyway and some other insects I found both in the forest and in my garden. I have also taken a photograph of one of our most poisoness spiders (we call it Cross spider because it has a cross on its back) but I post that photo last today so that You who have troubles looking at spiders knows where it is.
If I put together all the different weather forecasts I can find we will have partly cloudy with risk for showers here today and reasonable warm. With a very few flies around it might even be nice to mow the lawn :-) I should have done that days ago but I can wait another couple of days until it´s too late :-)
But before anything else I will have a cup of tea and then it´s off to the grocery store in Gudhem. It´s time to fill up my fridge again.
Have a great day now!
The Cross spider. This must be a male since it´s rather small and brown. The female is three times as big and more towards greyish black in her colors. I like them a lot since I lost my fear of spiders :-)
