A gardening afternoon

So the day started off well with a Muntjac viewed from the bedroom window, and a Daddy long-legs spider on the bedroom wall.

After lunch I spent some time in the garden and managed to photograph a few insects for later confirmation of ID. 

Bombus pratorum - Early Bumblebee

Eristalis pertinax - Tapered Drone Fly
Harlequin ladybird
These two lichens were on the window ledge, they seemed to fit with the photos I found on-line.

Lichens Xanthoria parietina and Physcia tenella
