A Bug's Life

By hellsbells8868
This is a few images from Wednesday nights Inn Focus meet at The Lonely Shepherd....
Im not really a landscapes kinda gal so whenever im out and about im looking for flowers, this is where i came across these little fellas......V1 & V2 i don't know what these bugs are they were red/orange...

V3 & V4 this little guy was practising his pull ups...he wouldn't keep still so i just clicked a few anyway..

They were handheld and it was a little windy so they aren't the best but i thought they were kinda cute!! This is the first outdoor bugs i have done, i loved it so am going to have to invest in some plants for the garden..
