Not So Deadly Nightshade

Well, if you're the Belladonna Flea Beetle Epitrix atropae that is. This is the characteristic feeding damage of this tiny little flea beetle that I only spotted yesterday because Dave Green asked what the plant was. I also have Dave and Penny to thank for the inspiration to take this shot with the Sun in the back ground.

Dave and Penny also showed this little moth larvae, feeding away in the old seed heads of Carline Thistle. This is Metzneria aestivella.
And of course, the rare and beautiful Pancalia schwarzella is everywhere up there right now.
