Here in the northeastern U.S., we have the famous Brood X periodical cicadas, who emerge every 17 years. Here’s the first one I spotted, on a picnic a couple of weeks ago.

For the six weeks or so that they’re alive and mating, they buzz/hum loudly enough to be heard indoors if you’re close to a wooded area.

I like your observation of nature. When my wife and I went to pick mushrooms, we saw a lot of different beetles that we had not seen before.

Banded Demoiselle (morwyn wych) damselfly - one of many out and about today near the banks of the River Cherwell
While checking out which damselfy it was I came across this short video of Banded Demoiselles from the British Dragonfly Society:

This turned up in a pot in my garden as a mystery plant a couple of years ago. This year it flowered for the first time and, a great surprise, it turns out to be an orchid! :astonished:


Common Spotted Orchid / Tegeirian Brych

Orobranche minor, gorfanhadlen, common or lesser broomrape.
(At least, I think so.) Parasitic on the clover plants all around.

If you look very carefully :face_with_monocle: on the right of the photo (click to enlarge) just below the horizon, you can just make out one of a group of 3 or 4 dolphins (dolffiniaid) spotted just off the coast at Nant Gwrtheyrn last week
