In my book that makes for quite a large bug,, but well spotted none the less, my adventures in bug hunting thus far have been limited to flying bugs, and one earwig.

That's quite small for the scabious Carol - we have them growing in a meadow area on the way to work and they are much larger than that.
Splendid detail as ever
