Windscreen Wipers

By Fotofunguy  
Here is a another insect, This is a Cockchafer Beetle and if you look closely you will see what looks like an old scrubbing brush across the eye.

Seems beetles discovered windscreen wipers long before Henry Ford did.

At certain times of the year these often crash into the windows of our house, this is the time when Little Owls feed on them with great vigour.

Many thanks again to all of you that have looked at my portfolio, made constructive criticism and voted for my work, it really is appreciated.

I extend my special thanks to my super mentor Phil and he knows who he is, the lovely Lillian I'm sure you all know who she is, Heather, Dave, Keith and Keith, Hermanus, Chris, Ian, Tony, Nezih, Ann, Sparrowhawk, Sebastian, Christine, Ray, Colin, David, John, Gwyn and Lavinia etc.

If I've missed your name I apologise.
