Life on a Landfill

It's been a while since I last posted, things have been pretty busy. Our office is almost complete we are laying water pipes tomorrow and then we will be able to have a toilet and sink. The building above is NOT the office Ha Ha.

I have been pleased to find a multitude of nature on site but have not had time to photograph them..... until today. A window of opportunity presented itself today, one whole hour with camera in hand.
So I thought I would share with you a couple of my photos.

There were many grasshoppers on site but although I could hear them they were so hard to spot, eventually I found one and a fine specimen he was too or is it a she I will find out from my son. It is handy having an entomologist in the family.

Smile for the camera.. A very accommodating Dragonfly 

Packed lunch, a poor ladybird wrapped up for later.

Hard work done now for a nap.

Until the next time from Life on a Landfill.

Lovely series of the life at the landfill. I liked the lunch to go, although sad to see a ladybug all trussed up as they are such a help in the garden.

Hi Dad,

The grasshopper is an adult male Stenobothrus lineatus, or "stripe-winged grasshopper".
