Insect Royalty - Primal Scream

Bit of a cop-out today as we have had to wander a little further afield mainly to get the 6th puncture of the year mended! Don't know just how far back some of these images go but are a collection of Insects all caught, at one time or another, in the Moth Traps.

POPLAR LUTESTRING

 LIGHT ARCHES

there are some which catch our imagination such as

a 'smart' little thing.

BROAD-BODIED CHASER
 FIELD CUCKOO BUMBLEBEE
 MINING BEE
ROBBERFLY

(we just love that one)
 ICHNEUMON FLY (species?)
