A friend rang to tell me about a Speckled Bush Cricket he had found. They are common in some areas but this is only the second report ever for this area. No wonder he was excited :-)

Nice legs . . shame about the face :-)
Your pictures are stunning, have you ever entered into any photo competition's ?
Nope. I'm under no illusions about my photos or my ability. Compared to hundreds of other photographer's work they are mediocre at best.
I get a lot of pleasure from my hobby. That's all that matters to me.
