Leafhopper (Eupteryx filicum)
A dew soaked honey bee still too cold from the night before in Dunsford Woodland, Devon, UK. With it being so cold on the morning I took this picture I knew it would be a while before it was warm enough to fly away. I liked how this honey bee look like it was having a bad hair day being saturated with the morning dew. The final image is a compilation of focus-stacked pictures.
Hazel Sawfly Larva (Nematus septentrionalis)
A group of Hazel Sawfly Larvae (Nematus septentrionalis) in Stover Country Park, Devon, UK. These larvae can be quite numerous at certain times of the year but rarely do you find them lined up and posing for you so nicely.

Stilt Bug (Metatropis rufescens)
Panoramic view of a Stilt Bug (Metatropis rufescens) in Dunsford Woodland, Devon, UK. When I went to photograph this insect I thought it was another mosquito or crane fly but was pleasantly surprise to find something different and a nice addition to my True Bug collection.
Morning on the Wall

A Plain Gold (Micropterix calthella), a micro-moth, is covered in golden balls of pollen from a creeping buttercup flower found in Mutter’s Moor near Sidmouth, Devon, UK. I had several micro-moths to choose from when I came across the group of buttercups they were feeding on. Without the magnification of the lens, I couldn’t tell what I was going to get, but the moment I saw this little moth, I knew I had the perfect subject.

Lunch on a leaf
Two Hazel Sawfly Larva eating on a leaf in Mutter’s Moor near Sidmouth, Devon, UK. Knowing Sawfly Larva can be plentiful in the early autumn month, I set out looking for them on this day. On my walk through the woodland, I hadn’t seen many insects that would allow me to photograph them. Then I came across a group of this larva, and I was happy I found what I was looking for and even more pleased to see these two almost mirroring each other.
A Dock Bug siting on a leaf soaking up the sun in Mutter’s Moor near Sidmouth, Devon, UK. On one of my nature walks hunting for insects and all things tiny, I came to an opening in the woodland and saw this Dock bug sitting in the sun, soaking up some rays. Having already photography dock bugs up-close, I wanted to take advantage of the sun and get more of its living environment. I adjusted my point of view to be at eye level with the dock bug and took a series of pictures moving back and forth slightly to change the plane of focus. The final image is a compilation of focus-stacked pictures.
