Yesterday I found this wonderful grasshopper hunting wasp (Tachysphex pompiliformis) in N Wales. Watched her as she caught, paralysed, then dragged a large grasshopper back into her nest! This big grasshopper will be enough for her young to fully develop on!

Beatrix was fascinated by insects and studying their characteristics. Her love for animals and insects was heavily influenced in her stories, such as 'The Tale of Mrs Tittlmouse' who came across many insects, such as spiders, beetles, bees and Lady Birds.

Doing a bee survey on private land in today, and I found the Bee Beetle (Trichius fasciatus)!!! Absolutely made my day! 😊 She was inspecting a pile of dead wood (presumably to lay her eggs?).
