Insects from The Garden of the Future
Several gardens at the flower show attracted large numbers of bees and hoverflies, but in this area of The Garden of the Future by Reaseheath College, planted with marigolds, I also saw a couple of small tortoiseshell butterflies (Aglais urticae) as well as this silver Y moth (Autographa gamma). (The hoverfly is Syrphus ribesii.) For a detailed account of Tatton Park 2004, see the feature article The RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park 2004.
