The early arrivals have begun to make themselves more apparent, one of them the Stick Insect.
This specimen was around 30cm long.
It was great to get a good shot of the most unusual mouth structure of this insect - one that works like a pair of sideways angled snips as the creature trims away at the leaves
Tiny Orb Weaver Spiders have begun to appear, as have a variety of caterpillars.
Im looking forward to photographing them with the new equipment purchased this last winter, with the aim to reveal new insights into their construction and behaviour.
