Syromastes rhombeus is easily recognized by its diamond shaped abdomen extending well beyond the edges of the folded wings. It can be found on heaths and dry grasslands and also in open woodland if the soil is well drained.

"It can be found on heaths and dry grasslands"
Easy for you to say, Carol.
No surprise that you can find it!
Great shot!

A very dignified name for a very dignified beastie. You have done it justice in these shots.

It sounds like a condition you get as you get older Carol, a magnificent set though Carol top class.

A brilliant capture, with a wonderful composition (I like the way its bum fits into the lower right corner!). Smile

I take it this is a Grecian 'beastie', Carol? It would frighten me witless, if I found it in my garden (or... heaths and dry grasslands and also in open woodland...) in Scotland. The size, I hope. is due to your expertise in Macro Photography and not something out of "The Day of The Triffids"?!
It is, of course, excellent photography, of which I am profoundly jealous (having never even looked down a macro lens!).
