We are getting the kids outdoors every day this summer by hunting for mini beasts in our garden, park, fields or wherever we happen to be. Bugs, butterflies, bees and beetles - we will be recording all our finds right here and over on http://babyroutes.co.uk/summer-holidays-minibeast-challenge Why don't you join in too? Send me a request to the board to pin your finds on the map here and let's see just how much wildlife we have lurking right under our toes!

Good to see the hoverflies out in force working hard to keep the aphids under control in the garden today. Love these harmless little beauties. Never noticed how transparent their wings are before now - like something off the fashion runways at the moment! #hoverfly #bugs #insects #nature #naturalbeauty #gardening #staywild

There's a caterpillar party going on on my roses. Think this is a Vapourer Moth caterpillar- anyone know for sure? #bugs #insects #caterpillars #nature

Just rescued this little bug from the pond to be rewarded by it jumping over my head! It's got a big leap for something half the size of my thumbnail! Is it a froghopper? Anyone know? #bugs #insects #nature #365dayswild #staywild
