Another month gone, and time for another collage. In fact, there are three this month, being spoilt for choice with bugs and insects. V.1 is a selection of bugs/beasties that came to my pyracantha bush in the garden, V.2 is critters found in and around the garden and meadows, and V.3 is not for arachnophobics!
