Brown Argus nectaring on buttercup.
A Blue dining at the same restaurant chain. The perils of identifying blue butterflies. Show me the upper wing markings and I'd say it was a very bright Common Blue, but the underwing makes me think it's an Adonis Blue. Let's just call it a Blue.

We don't get them up north.
Roses? Aye we do.
Saw this pootling along the pavement this morning.
Calling Martin - is this a cricket?
I thought Crickets were green but I looked it up and the way to tell is the antennae which you cropped off.
Long antenna, so yes it's a cricket. A male bush cricket I think.
Aka the June bug.
The cricket was in the woods between Milton Abbas and Bulbarrow
I think it is female due to that ovipositor.

Funnily enough when I came down for my breakfast this morning, there was one on its back in the sink - how something that szie got in without either of us spotting I don't know!
A longhorn beetle I saw the other day while walking a boxer. Not looked for an id yet but it was a good bit smaller than others I've seen.
Inbetween torrential showers in my garden today.
Some kind of fly.
As yet unidentified.
