A Small Tortoiseshell feeds on Michaelmas Daisies in a roadside garden.
The sunny afternoon makes me decide that it's about time I cut the hedge. Mowing the grassy path alongside it I accidentally stir up a commotion on the wasps' nest. I was saying only the other day that they have been no trouble, even so I wait for the activity to die down before I gingerly back away the lawn mower.
