I spent most of my time in an area about four metres long, creeping along with my camera, peering at the bugs which could be found skulking. I was rewarded with two scary looking insects feasting on another insect, some ladybird porn, some pregnant spiders and a few obviously very near sighted caterpillars.
Amusingly, twice while I was crouching down with my camera, people walking dogs came along: to give you an idea of what some people around here are like, they immediately turned around and walked the other way.
Either that or I actually look like some kind of lunatic. (Don't answer that.)
|Taking a stroll.|
|I'm really not sure what was going on here. And I'm not sure I want to know.|
|I do know that they were at it for a long time.|
|Enjoying a snack.|
|Not sure what the predators were, but these two were feasting on what looked like a very mangled cranefly.|
|One was clearly dominant: the one on the right kept getting chased away.|
|He didn't seem happy about being excluded from the dinner table..|
|He went off to sulk.|
|Wait.. what's that up there? Is it that lunatic with the camera again?|
|One very pregnant spider. Note she was missing a leg..|
|Another pregnant spider.|
|Just hanging out.|
|Watching and waiting.|
