Common Blue butterfly I took a couple of months ago (one of my favourite pics so far) and a beauty of a spider in the garden.

Spotted a couple of links on my Flickr page from here, so I thought I'd share a few of my recent shots.

A damsel I took last summer. Took multiple efforts to get something half decent.

It was just a couple of years back that I started trapping moths. Most are described "common" - so how come I had never "seen" any of them before?
When you start photographing them you begin to realise what beautiful little creatures they are. This is one of them - the Ghost Moth...

after this snap,the grasshopper stayed on my fingers for another 10 minutes :shok: ,which i found remarkable,then having to shove it off my finger back on to the grass.

Not unusual for a grasshopper to land on you, but when they realise where they are they're usually pretty quick to move on.

This is a female Bark Boxer Mantis, Paraoxypilus sp., shaping up like a regular little pugalist.

Anybody seen or know what this is? The picture doesn't do it justice but it was the size of a bumblebee..It was in my garden today.

A sweet little digger wasp, called a bee wolf, trying to get into a tunnel, it's already occupied by a wasp and is told to go away. I saw another one dragging a dead bee into a tunnel, they catch bees to store up inside the 1m long holes to feed their wasp larvae.
