Frogs make a nasty squealing noise when threatened or hurt. Well, you would if you were in a cat's jaws. I rescued it and it seemed unharmed, just in case anyone was concerned about the outcome.

A female stag beetle. They never cease to amaze me how awkward they are walking around in the grass. This one ended up on her back several times.
Oh, and a couple of Fallow deer, whilst I'm about it. They were in Home Park this afternoon. Remarkable how different their colouring can be.

Trapped in the house this butterfly died in the perfect position to take a closer look.
Speckled woods tend to sit on leaves with their wings open so you rarely get a chance to see the beautiful pattern and delicate colours of the underside.
If you look closely there seems to be a midge here as well.
