It was great to go out for a nature walk today — I’ve been too busy recently. It was only in my local area and just for a couple of hours. The highlight was finding a new (to me) species of longhorn beetle. It’s a small species (5mm) so I was pretty lucky to spot this pair on a branch in the forest.
