I caught a grasshopper :-)









This lacewing sat on the road for me!








I was so pleased to see this beautiful butterfly and EVENTUALLY managed to get a photo.










A big beastie when close up.









Isn't this a beautiful moth. It's amazing how beautiful insects are when you look close, the things we humans miss.
