Thank you Nigel and Lee. Nigel the colour is my modern nasturtiums so Lee I don't have to crawl far - I plant to attract bugs now!!! They have developed some superb colours - vivid oranges, stunning yellows and blood reds. Different insects prefer different colours. Viv

To me he looks likes he is dining by candlelight! Only inverted. Beautiful Viv, you have a lovely sense of .........bug. All kidding aside Viv, I hope you are doing something, other than showing us, with all these fantastic images. Maggi

Hey Viv, let me clarify, when I say doing something else, I mean, making a book or publishing a how to take a bug shot! Hey that would be a good name. Instead of "Mug Shots" they could be Bug Shots". Maggi

Some of these comment crack me up. I can think of a few one liners but none of you would get them as you are not familiar with the accents if our Kiwi bothers.
(big is pronounced bug in new Zealand... read some of the above with "i" in place of "u" Viv )
After all of that- great shot. john
