Local Insect Sightings

If you wish to have a picture of any insect put up here, email the photo to athenrytt@gmail.com with date and where picture was taken. We are only looking for photos taken in general Athenry area.

We will endeavour to identify each insect and will credit you with the photograph. We are also looking for photographs of birds, wild animals and wild flowers.

It may take us a while to identify some bees or insects as some of them are very difficult, if not impossible, to tell apart from photos. But we'll try.
