I have been busy looking for bugs in my garden today. I turned over stones and pots and dug in the soil. I found lots of different bugs. I found two black beetles under a stone. They ran very fast so I put them in my pot. They had stripes on their backs and shiny heads. I also found a green larva in the soil, I don't know what it will turn into.
Pterostichus Niger - Large Black Ground Beetle & Small Green Larva
A Long Centipede which wriggled like a snake
I found a very very long centipede in the damp soil by a big tree. It was light yellow in colour and had little legs, it moved along like a snake. I also found a funny looking millipede with lots of spiky striped legs, I don't know what type of millipede it is. It didn't move very fast and was happy staying still on my arm for a photo.
Seven Spotted Ladybird
