- at last I found out what that means. Hope this will renew my membership in the RAS. Found this yesterday in Mr Nadaud's garden, where I go hunting for critters during lunch break.

My special thanks to Gerry for the UA. And to you all for your encouraging votes and comments Smile Lynne found the perfect explanation for the violet capped and lined mantis.

I like this image, the colour of blurred background works well against the rust.

You may have found the Holy Grail of rust here annette.

Many Knights spent many nights seeking this item,but to no avail.
But I reckon Sir Launcelot did find it but he kept quiet and never told his mates !!
A splendid bit of rust.
