Why its called earwig I have no idea but this is my offering today - many thanks for all c/c's on yesterdays upload, always grateful for your comments and encouragement thank you difficult to decide the best photo for the lead on this occasion.

Off to the doctor again today, had another bad turn - I could either come home relatively satisfied with the meeting or be really cross as I am not getting the help I had hoped forSad

they are going to fit me with a heart monitor now - we shall see

A beautiful narcissi, Ann, and a not so pleasing bug, earwigs eat everything Sad. Hope you get some success at the doc's today. Carol

The sharpness and contrast of v1 wins it for me, Ann. I've not seen an earwig doing this before either. Hope all goes well.

A superb shot of this lovely flower Ann. Colour and detail is excellent.
