A sun fly, a common type of hoverfly, struggling to get deep into a bindweed flower to get at that delicious nectar.
Fruit on the spindle tree opposite Tettenhall Station (alias Cupcake Lane). Now getting their first blush of pink developing from the earlier unripe green. The colours should bet brighter and more dramatic as the fruit ripen.
Candy-striped spider, still stoically guarding her nest. The nest is on the underside of two hazel leaves, which are stitched together by some of the outer threads of the nest.
At least six ring-necked parakeets were in West Park, high in the trees, calling persistently to one another. Occasionally, one would move to another vantage point, high in an alternative nearby tree, still hidden in the foliage. They may have been young ones, dispersing after a successful breeding season: there are nest sites on Tettenhall ridge / the Smestow valley.
This is the only one I managed to grab a distant shot of. It flew to the island, landing on one of the willows overhanging the lake. Seconds after I got this picture, it moved deeper into the leafy canopy.
