I seem to have a ‘blonde’ deryn y to in the garden lately - it’s much paler than all the usual ‘brunettes’!
I’ve never seen another one this colour before - how common is it, I wonder? Any ideas @Cetra?



I’ve also had this handsome young dudwy visit a couple of times

I came across a couple of those in my garden in Llandysul a couple of years ago - fascinating things! Wish I’d seen the moths though!

lindys gwalch-wyfynod helyglys - I’ve had the green version in my garden this year, first time I’ve ever seen the green type!

and so pretty in any language

Not outside but probably should be…

Sioncyn y gwair?
Ceiliog y Rhedyn

I think it’s actually a cricket not a grasshopper but they have cuter names

Criciedyn or cricsyn which the dictionaries give me is less endearing :wink:

We moved to Pembrokeshire three weeks ago and two or three nights after arriving we noticed the moon appearing through the hedge/field boundary. It was an emotional moment which this snap doesn’t do justice to.

I noticed about six butterflies flying fairly randomly in the garden so grabbed a camera and tried to get a picture of at least one of them. I stood by a shrub which they seemed to be attracted to and finally got a picture of this Red Admiral - iar fach goch.

Unfortunately I didn’t have my mobile phone so was unable to take a selfie of the two which, much to the amusement of my wife, settled on my head.


#4163

And your wife couldn’t quickly grab the camera and capture the moment for posterity?:rofl::joy:


#4164

Camera shake due to laughing doesn’t help in photography.


#4165

True :rofl:


#4166

Seen yesterday in grass by a hedgerow - Shaggy Ink Cap/Cap Inc Carpiog maybe?
