    Thanks, early morning is best for these critters they tend to bit a more lethargic.

                    The first butterfly appears to be a Double Banded Crow & my guess for the second one would be another variance of a Crow. See here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euploea_sylvester

                    The little grass hopper or whatever is certainly well disguised amongst the rock details.

                        Michael, your damselfly is very good. Have you sharpened the image, or are they out-of-camera?

                          Some wonderful shots and great information too

                          Here is a shot of a dung fly blowing a bubble Taken on our blackcurrant bush.

                            If I had the habits of a Dungfly I'd be blowing bubbles. Very nice image!

                              This thread reminded me of my first visit to see my daughter when she moved to Tokyo. There were some strange insects to be seen.
                              This one decided to invade our open air picnic lunch - I didn't argue. By the way it's moving left to right.


                              This one was about 75-100mm tip to tip (I didn't get too close to measure him)


                              And this was the outcome when one of them eventually managed a bit of white meat. I looked like a flesh coloured inflated rubber glove for 4-5 days. I couldn't see my knuckles and I had no feeling in my hand for all that time. You can just see the bite in front of my wrist.
