A Long Long Weekend Part I

There were a couple of orchid species I wanted to see this year - Military and Late Spider. It became obvious that the season was going to be earlier than usual this year yet the weather was pretty unaccommodating so as soon as a couple of dry, if not hot, days were forecast, I planned to set off on a couple of adventures.

Going out to the car on Friday, I noticed a shieldbug on the windscreen. I potted it and realised that is was a new species for me.
