I was busy uploading some photos amongst which was this handsome bug. I had seen them before with their red and black design and so I named it as a fire bug. However, this is not a fire bug. Quickly I was corrected by another photographer who knew his bugs, and he told me that this was actually Lygaeius equestris and not a Pyrrhocoris apteus. As I am not acquainted with the latin names I delved further into their species. Now this bug has a really interesting patterrn on its back and Wikipedia tells me the english name is Black and Red Bug, which is not really surprising as these are its colours.

To return to the Pyrrhocoris apteus you can see that the firebug has a different pattern on its back. It is amazing what you discover on a blogging site. Actually I was also quite pleased, I had learned something new, and discovered a different bug. I wonder if they would meet they would realise the different patterns on their shell. And now I have got my definitions sorted.

RDP Friday: Lurking

Did you ever have a feeling that someone or something was watching you? First of all I heard a sort of whirring sound, as if there was a motor bike approaching. It was then I saw a shadow on the ground and then it arose. This was my first sighting of a drone within almost touching distance and it followed my every move. It was then I saw a lady with something that looked like an enlarge mobile phone – and she was steering it. This was in the senior home where Mr. Swiss is. She was visiting said she got it for a reduced price. Today you are never safe, there is always something lurking and watching and now they are selling them as bargains.
