From my first submission of more bugs and beasties
A tiny leafhopper nymph with an ant drinking the excess honeydew which is being excreted. I must admit to being pretty excited to have caught this.

Another few bugs and beasties from me.
 

Some different sawfly larvae (these are not caterpillars)

A reasonably docile dragonfly, but one shot and it was gone

Sex in the bushes, not the best background, but hey, I was happy to get a couple of shots, before they flew off, still joined.

While purging my stock of older images I came across some JPGs, dating back to the early 2000s, for which I couldn't find a raw file. Thinking back, those were the days of a Canon 20D and DVDs, and I still have the DVDs.  Here's a shot, of the fire being dumped from a steam loco, dating back to 2006. I've a friend who volunteers for a local heritage railway, and, on seeing the photo, said that he had done that  job on that very loco, and that it was very unpleasant ! Sadly the engine in question is out of action needing a heavy overhaul and there is no money available to carry out the work.

Thanks Paulette and Cecile. Yes it was a great day shooting these old vintage car up close and in such poor weather conditions. A challenge at times trying to keep your equipment dry from the rain and mud. I agree, using B&W for some subjects can be the best option showing the full drama of the event where colour can be a distraction.

A few from the latest bug batch. The first couple for Gen......

A  winged Arkys spider, size of a 1 cent piece. Absolutely flat and looked like a discoloured spot on the leaf, until I realised it was too uniform.

A beautiful Orb Weaver spider, she's just moulted and still attached to her exoskelton by a silk thread. A difficult shot in that she was in the middle of a massive web, and I did not want to touch any strands and scare her.

A female damselfly

And my favourite find.....a katydid nymph, the most amazing colours.
