Things I've seen

Whilst I was in Germany I saw two insects of interest (to me anyway) this here big chap is a Great Green Bush Cricket, that flew onto my beer glass one evening sitting on the veranda and gave me quite a fright!

...and this was a real treat - this is a very large, and quite rare Poplar Admiral.
Certainly one of the most impressive wild butterflies I've ever had the honour of seeing!

Oh yes - that Poplar Admiral - a beaut! Like the cricket too. We've had the annual Cricket scare story in the papers, as we do every summer - big foreign crickets coming over here, eating our crickets, stealing our wives...
