    Keeping with the bug theme of my last couple of posts, here's a couple that weren't being shy:

    1 The caterpillar of an Australian privet hawk moth Psilogramma menephron ssp. menephron
    2 a praying mantis
    3 Australian Grass Pyrgimorph - Atractomorpha australis

    Though I can't say I've ever been quiet at fond of insects nor the damage most do, sometimes they give opportunity that cannot be resisted.

    Cheers Guys,
    Blake the last one is pretty much a grasshopper and have a family of their own although they can also be found under a sub-family of grasshoppers.
    I leave the guys wonder off to their defences afterwards too, kind of makes me look at the use of pesticides a little differently. However it doesn't stop me putting my plants before bugs... sorry little guys :{ I spray probably once or twice a year to control a few seasonal pests but generally there's a pretty good balance of good and bad ones keeping each other under control and I hate to upset the balance.
