The Queen's Back Garden - May 2010

James McGill and I joined a field meeting of the Dipterist's Group that were visiting an area of Windsor Great Park not usually open to the general public. This area is very good for a variety of species that have died out in the surrounding countryside. Apart from a good number of nice beetles that were not very photogenic, we managed to see some very nice colourful click beetles and a "holy grail" species of hoverfly that had many of the dipterists drooling.

Ampedus rufipennis

Caliprobola speciosa
