More creepy-crawlies

Bee Fly

Green Tiger Beetle (one day I'll get the shot I'm really after, with no blades of grass concealing the mouthparts)

Glow-worm larva pretending to be dead...
All with Nikon Coolpix 4500 (all clickable for larger versions)

It is fabulous, sunny, warm (out of the cool breeze) day (27.3.07) and Brian The Natural Stone and I were once more in the field hunting bugs, moths and reptiles. This time we were at Old Sulehay in the old quarry part. Brian found a few lizards and the Glow-worm and the tiger beetle and Peacock, Brimstone and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies. I found one or two Bee Flies. And I must say, I have never seen so many Dog Violets in my life. Sensational.
