This is Pops, our new rescue pig, enjoying some tunnel time. Piggies are never happier than when they have a roof over their heads, like in a tunnel or box. Their ancestors were a predated species in the wild and they feel at risk from raptors, foxes and carnivores in general and feel safer if they can retreat under cover if there's any danger approaching.
This is gymnosoma rotundatum - a ladybird mimic fly. Sadly though, there are no ladybirds to mimic in our garden at present and this solitary fly is the only one of its kind seen this summer. The spectacular loss of insect life is a spectacular failure on the part of humanity to address the triple problems of global climate change, pesticide and herbicide use and habitat loss, humanity continuing to fail to understand the enormity of its war against the natural world. Across the globe though there are many concerned people and organisations doing their utmost to give nature that long overdue helping hand but it's governments who have the power and at present it's economics that talks and governments are blinded by big money, big ideas, big deals and wealthy donors. The silent catastrophe taking place under their very noses has missed the headlines entirely.
