This may seem a bit weird when the blog is about barging through France, but I’m afraid it will always home in on the things I find fascinating – usually the wildlife!
Quite often delicate and beautiful insects, spiders and butterflies hitch a lift on Calliope. When I am lucky I manage to catch a close-up.
To be fair the slug and red beetle were not on the boat, but right by it, and they replace a yellow beetle and grey slug that were aboard, but did not get photographed.
And I discovered this lovely insect house at Gray Chateau garden.
