More May insects

Although the weather is still uncertain and often cold, the vegetation in the Rectangle is now rising rapidly and creating a shadowy green understorey of the kind preferred by insects and other invertebrates.  The hogweed looks like becoming dominant.

Yesterday I found a solitary bee (yet to be identified) and a spring cranefly, Tipula vernalis, resting comfortably in the grass.
