    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.

    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.
