All things creepy crawly ....

How do you feel about things with more than 2 legs?
I am generally fine about insects but anything with 8 legs leaves me running for cover. 
The farm in Africa has loads of creepy crawlies - most of whom are never seen as they are quite shy.

On our 6 day stay on the farm, we came across some absolutely stunning butterflies ....

and this equally impressive Preying Mantis who was reflected in the window glass

The locusts are not for moving as they have sharp barbs on their legs that leave nasty cuts so they get chased on ...

All in all, they make for interesting times with all their bright colours ...


Do you tolertate insects or are they just not your thing?
