More Wetland pictures

Went for a 6 k walk at Newport Wetland, a slow one as I was looking for subjects to photograph. Lots of butterflies around but difficult to catch on camera.  Lots of common blues but sadly out of focus, as was the small copper below it.  I think I hadn't set my camera for close up.

Below is one of the dozens of gatekeepers flying around

Now for something a little different. After a search on Google I have decided this is a cone head cricket.
