Hogweed


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.
