A selection of images that are all 'one-off's', instead of a series. V.1 is a scorpionfly I spotted, seemingly enjoying a meal from some kind of seed. V.2 is a wasp blowing a bubble, V.3 an ant, and V.4 unknown.

Great stuff, Carol! Four superb captures of equal merit. I especially like V3 - a little critter doing his best to look like a ferocious giant!

Has anyone else ever, in the history of the World, taken a picture of a wasp blowing a bubble.....? As on many occasions Carol I am suitably amazed.GrinGrinGrin

All 4 of these images are first rate but V4 has something extra for me, stunning.
