Photo a Day # 2
It was while having a cup of tea in the garden this afternoon, that I spied this earwig clinging to the underside of the mesh table we have on the patio. It's our commonest of 4 species of earwig in the UK (though sources now quote 7 due to new arrivals). It's a female of the species Forficula auricularia - female as its 'pincers' are straight (ish). This image I took underneath appealed to me. Wildlife is out of sight until we see it.
