Nothing much moving out there still in the depths of winter, but here are a few from the garden and outhouse walls tonight...

Interesting that they are all dark chocolate brown. Coincidence or your preference as master of this universe?

Interesting group . Have you tried to identify them?

#1 and #2 are almost certainly Culiseta annulata (a widespread and common mosquito of the British Isles).

#3 and #4 is the common woodlouse Oniscus asellus (typically grey with irregular light patches) and is usually found under bark and amongst leaf litter in gardens and woodlands. #3 was on a damp part of my garden fence, #4 inside the outhouse building in a space between bricks near the door.

#5 is one of 25 slugs over here - hard to identify some of them, this may have been a dusky slug Arion subfuscus but I am by no means certain!

Hi, Paul,

This is stunning work!

By the way, the "slug" on your shots (sorry for the pun) is itself very nice.

Best regards, and stay safe.

Doug
