I love gardening, particularly wildlife and GYO. I have an addiction when it comes to buying plants. I only wish I could spend more time indulging!

May be a Fairyring Long Horned Beetle 🤔 (that’s a real thing, I haven’t made that up! 😂)

That’s a fantastic name Rachel! I’ve looked it up and I’m not sure it’s horns are long enough, I wonder if there’s a fairyring short horn beetle 😂 @rachelbrooks

I’ve found it! It’s a turnip sawfly. Which is unfortunate as I’m not growing any turnip but it does like nectar from umbellifers which I do have so maybe passing through! @rachelbrooks

Ah, yes I wasn’t sure his horns were long enough! 🤣 oh well at least you know what it is now. I had an Asparagus Beetle the other day...I don’t grow that either! 😂
