Looks similar the Chinese Mantis, Tenodera sinensis
It is a female House Sparrow.
I moved the fourth to a separate spotting, had assumed the same from a different angle as all taken within a few seconds of each other.
Thanks, could it be the Forest Bug, Pentatoma rufipes, at least for the first 3. I only have a basic wildlife book for most of what I see. I think the fourth one is the same individual as it was taken 23 seconds after the others so I think just a different angle. Not found any pictures showing the underside.
Thanks for the ID, page updated.
Thanks for the tip, my book shows a match to S Vulgaris which is called a Bladder Campion.
Will have to wait until all functions are working again, I can hardly do anything now...
Hi John, welcome to Project Noah. This appears to be the same species as the previous spotting. If this is the case then we have a simple rule and that is "same species, same day, same place = one spotting" of up to 6 pictures.
Since this is a female European Garden Spider (Araneus diadematus) and the other picture is a male of the same species they may be left separate, but I would suggest noting the difference in the description for the benefit of other viewers and adding the scientific name which I have given you.
You can do this by clicking on the "Edit this Spotting" link below the main picture.
You can find more of our rules in the FAQs pages https://www.projectnoah.org/faq
Certainly looks like one.
Thanks for the ID Goergina3, not seen or heard of pink ones before.
