There hasn't been too much nice weather in western Norway so far this summer, so we took the opportunity to present a few common insects from the garden when the sun appeared today:


Young male Sympetrum danae. This species has esteblished a population in the pools we've created in the trapping garden, and they are just hatching now. Svart høstlibelle, hann.


Acleris bergmanniana, very common among the Rosa rugosa in the trapping garden. Roseflatvikler.


The fruit fly Rhagoletis alternata is also common in the roses. Nypeflue.
