French Bugs (4 of 23)

By LynneJoyce  
The next step in emptying my 'Ready' folder is to post these lovely French bugs, all captured while out at the very well named Mozzie Lake with Annette38 last Autumn. (My legs itch just thinking about it!)

This time I remembered to disable voting so these are simply for entomological and photographic interest. As ever, the exif applies only to the first shot.

Thank you for looking and I hope that you enjoy at least a few of these insectivorous lovelies.

A fine set of varied species including one rather tatty butterfly and a few of the mantis, an insect I always feel looks malevolent and ready to get you at all costs, although I have probably got that all wrong.
My favourite is V 1 which rightly deserves that slot, IMHO.

PS.......managed to see all versions today for a change.

Magnifique! v1 is a cracking lead but v9 would look superb on a wall (but without that blade of grass though).
