Sorry about the double post, I don't know how to delete one of them

 

Apparently they live here in the south west, talking to a man that was close by who told me he has them in his garden

Thanks for sharing that I didn't know anything about that and a good friend of mine was the deputy head entomologist at London zoo (I always think that should be the name for a tree specialist )

 You're right about entomology Jim. It should be about trees
