Well it's been writing and film mad, mad, mad, here at Tenacious Towers and what with one thing and another, it's been all go. But here's a thing that stumped me today.
I am hoping someone out there may know a thing or two about bugs - that is, colourful ones and of the garden variety. You see, whilst I was taking some time out and trimming one of the colossal lavender bushes in the T. T. grounds, I came across quite an extraordinary little beetle-y thing. Kind of like a ladybird with a petroleum-inspired colour scheme - or King Bling, as we named it.
Here are a couple of pictures I took. It was very tame and most accommodating, and it liked my purple ruler as much as I do.
Any takers? Just don't tell me it's worth a zillion quid as I placed it back, in a most Zen manner, exactly where I found it. ;)
