Roath Park Lake and Woodland Garden 04/08/2017

Looking for ringed gulls on Friday I came across a few insects of interest, a male and female Volucella zonaria, a couple of harvestman: Dicranopalpus ramosus and Leiobunum rotundum. An adult and caterpillar of the Comma butterfly and a Large Red-tailed Bumble Bee mating.
