All sorts of life on one little Willow

I decided to have a wander in the garden and see what I could see. I was looking on the little Willow tree to see if there were any insects, and I was surprised to find loads! It’s a cloudy rainy day, so I used my flash to capture the various insects. I’ve labelled them as best I can – if anyone can correct me or help with missing names, just leave a comment. The lesson (if there is one) is that if you look closely you’ll find your garden is teeming with life. All this in one little Willow tree! 🙂
