Ivy Flowers in Toft Cambridgeshire

After a lean time with very few insects around most of August and September, there has been an increase in the numbers and varieties of insects in our village this week with the ivy flowers in full bloom. Very difficult to photograph as the shiny leaves reflect any sunlight as in the first photo of Myathropea flavea. Loads of Harlequin ladybirds (an invasive species that has displaced our native ladybird in some location - comes in many different guises hence the name) with still some larvae around. Also immature Green Shieldbug.
