October proved to be somewhat of a bumper month for finding quite a variety of bugs and beasties, I hope you enjoy the selection, and look out for the critter in V.8 Smile

Clearly 'way too early for me to critter hunt as I've looked twice and can't see it in V8, but adore the flowers in that one. As always, love your floral montages especially though a wonderful selection of "bugs" in all the rest.
