First butterfly of 2019! And it's a peacock, one of my favourites 🦋😍🦋
Caterpillars-a-gogo! Anyone identify these guys? I’m thinking Oak Processionals maybe?! #wildlifephotography #ukwildlife #ukwildlifeimages #insectphotography #ukinsects #britishwildlife #britishwildlifephotography #britishinsects #caterpillars
My first attempt at butterflies,a large blue and a clouded yellow , decided on turning them into brooches #jewlery#garden#spring#butterfly#britishinsects#imbellishments#plants#summer#
Can anyone help identify this beetle? Uncovered an army of them in the stone border on the plot today. Is it a Black Sexton Beetle? @gawmetron @mostlygreenpics #blackbeetle #blacksextonbeetle #namethatbug #identifythisinsect #canyouhelp #britishbeetles #britishinsects #britishwildlife
A tribute to this triumphant little bird (and the unfortunate worm 🐛)

I have also just added Great Yellow Bumblebee prints to my etsy shop too! (Link in bio!) 🙌 . These guys are so lovely and sweet to draw. They are part of my Insectarium collection which focuses on our declining insect populations in the UK. . . . #bumblebeeillustration #bumblebee🐝 #bumblebee #bumblebeeart #bumblebeeprint #greatyellowbumblebee #ukinsects #britishwildlife #britishinsects #endangeredinsects #savethebees #beeillustration #beeart #beenest #beedrawing #illustrationnow #etsyseller #etsyshop #etsyprints #illustratorofinstagram #entomology #illustrationartists #wildlifeart #bugs #laurawilliamsillustration
I regularly find ladybirds in my flat and here is another! Not sure where they come from 😮 this one seemed pretty energetic and full of life so is back outside in the garden to hopefully live out its natural life 🐞🐞🐞🐞 #ladybird #ladybirds #britishinsects #bekind #vegansofig
My first embroidery! It's on my denim jacket and is a male banded damselfly, a common yet beautiful summer insect on the rivers near where I live.  It took forever because I had to make it hard for myself- I decided for positioning I wanted it to look like it had just landed on the seam, but this is a pocket so I was sewing through only one layer of two. On top of that I was using DMC metallic silks for the highlighting and if you've ever used those you know how un-user friendly they are! So basically I started this last summer and only finished it a few days ago.  #embroidery #denimjacket #bandeddamselfly #bandeddemoiselle #britishinsects #britishwildlife #dragonfly  #damselfly #dmcthreads #dmcmetallics #newimago

If theres alot of ladybirds seen in the spring it was generally thought that a great harvest would follow.  #ladybird🐞 #ladybird #ladybirds #insects_of_our_world #insects_perfection #insectphotography #insectphoto #macro_brilliance #macros #macro #macro_holic #macrophotography #nb_nature_brilliance #naturephotography #nature #nature_up_close #thebritishwildlife #wildlifepk #wildlife_shots #wildlife_vision #wildlifeuk #britishwildlife #britishinsects #spring #springwatch #garden #gardensafari #gardenlife

To some it's just a whole bag full of nope, but really these European Cave Spiders (Meta menardi) are stunning crafter's, making beautiful orb shaped webs.

Deaths head HawkMoth, someone found Loads of their caterpillars so they handed them to someone who ran Kenfig nature reserve centre and they put them in a box with leaves and twigs etc and raised them until they became the moths then let them go.

Clifden nonpareil - first for Wales and Glamorgan! Me and my mum were walking down the garden to do the moth trap, when she saw something crawling on the floor and she said "oh wow look there's a red underwing! Now we need to check it for a blue underwing.. IT'S A BLUE UNDERWING! WOW HOLS QUICK GO GET THE POT AND THE CAMERA!" so that's what happened, what a coincidence when she said to check for a blue underwing. We had about 6 people come to see this moth as it was a first for Wales and Glamorgan . . . . . #clifdennonpareil #clifdennonpareilmoth #blueunderwing #lepidoptera #moth #rare #raremoth #nature #wildlife #insects #insectlover #youngentomologist  #aspiringentomologist #britishnature #britainsnature #britishwildlife #britainswildlife #walesnature #waleswildlife #welshnature #welshwildlife #welshinsects #britishinsects #britainsinsects #walesinsects
Few days ago I rescued this honey bee which was in my brothers bedroom. Somehow it got inside the window. We think it might have stung something because its abdomen had stuff hanging out, so we put it on a flower then later found it on the floor so we put the honey bee in a pot with some honey and it loved that, so we kept it overnight and then let it go on the flowers in the morning. . . . . . #honeybee #bee #hymenoptera #nature #wildlife #insects #insectlover #youngentomologist  #aspiringentomologist #britishnature #britainsnature #britishwildlife #britainswildlife #walesnature #waleswildlife #welshnature #welshwildlife #welshinsects #britishinsects #britainsinsects #walesinsects
