Horsey Corner - Swollen Syphunculi

Don't often look at aphids, but caught quite a few distinctive looking ones the other day - a bit of investigation showed them to be Hyperomyzus pallidus, which uses Sonchus as a host plant at this time of year - lots of Perennial Sow Thistle (and also Marsh Sow Thistle) round here, so that's presumably where they came from. A reasonable number of autumn moths recently, plus a sweet little baby Grass Snake in the garden. The Red Deer stags are bellowing away this morning, don't want to get too close to them...
