Garden tick!

Since taking up bee-keeping, Linda and - to a lesser extent - I have filled the flower beds with nectar-producing species: it's proven a popular move, not just with the Honey Bees (and other visiting species) but also with butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. Nothing particularly unusual until today (although we had our first Gatekeepers of the year this morning and just a single Hummingbird Hawkmoth last week) but this afternoon we were visited by a Banded Demoiselle - our first in the garden!
