The dependable hogweed flowers all year round and produces large amounts of seed.

Which helps it spread everywhere.

Sometimes the flowers have a pinkish tinge and the stems are purple.

Very popular with invertebrates.  I spent just a few moments watching while numerous insects visited the flowers.

Here's a greenbottle fly.

Such a busy cafe.

and a couple more wasps on holiday.

Be careful not to confuse a wasp . . . . . . . 

. . . . . . with a hoverfly.

Lastly a soldier beetle.
