Col's Creature Watch #3

Whilst we were out watering the plants in the garden this week, we unexpectedly came across a couple of creatures scurrying to get away from the water.

The first was a large grasshopper measuring about 4 inches long. There were actually two of these, but the other one was a bit camera-shy.

The other creature was some sort of beetle. Although he was only about an inch or so in length his antennae (or feelers) were huge! As you can see below.

Those are not feelers on the second beetle. It is a large Salvador Dali moustache.

Have you stopped killing the animals then? I thought that this was going to be a great bloodbath series..
