... that I am almost completely useless at identifying and/or naming flora, just as I am with fauna, so I can't help with the plant it was on. Not laziness, but more like a life-long disability I'm afraid no matter how hard I try. So I do very much appreciate all the help I am getting here with identifying and naming what I have been photographing for the folk at the nature reserve.
FWIW, not that it really helps, my wife tells me that some of my photos (from round about where I spotted this aphid) could well have been vetches by the look of their flowers.
