We often see the plain green types in the UK but I don't know how many other varieties we might have.
Yet again, two super shots, Carol.
Brilliant work.

Hi Carol this is really a pin sharp image. excellent set of images but for me the V2 is the winner, very well spotted and caught the camouflaged bug..

Quite amazing you have spotted these. They seem the same colour as the leaves and blend in so well. And here you've captured them beautifully........Sandy

Evenin' Carol
Nowt to chose between them both

Seems as if the IS is over, but though parts of the country had rain, it totally missed us (Forecast wrong again)

Your skill in photographing bugs and insects never fails to amaze me Carol. 2 more lovely little creatures!

Beautiful pattern on the bug in V2 Carol.
This is a real "where does the bug start & the leaf end" shot Carol - excellent detail and sharp as a tack. Lou

Top macrowork Carol, as Tomcat has already stated the weather forecast is all over the shop at present, it was meant to be awful today but in fact it was ok and I managed to get out this afternoon on what is most likely to be my last butterflying expedition of 2013
