  1. Hi Trent
    Lovely pics as usual and a very good catch!
    Your Wormwood i'm afraid is a Common Pug.
    All the best.

  2. ..............more string than a tramps vest!

  3. Well done with the Small Elephant - I'm still waiting for my first!

  4. Cheers Jerry...
    Thanks Ben.... it's the easiest way to do it, publish it and wait if you're not sure... plenty of expert eyes to correct the mistakes. It was the dot on the thorax that looked like a wormwood.
    I'll publish a real one soon, I get both Wormwood and Currant in the garden, usually in some permitting, we've got gale force wind and rain as I type this.
    It IS June isn't it ??
