"I guess you would look sad if you had my life. I've just fallen out of a tree, landed with thump on the ground, and my head hurts. Now I have to climb all the way back up or there's no dinner for me tonight. One has to eat ! Yesterday my friend fell too but I haven't seen him since. Maybe he was stepped on by a human, there's a few of them about, or got eaten by one of those nasty Calosoma beetles. I've never even met my mum and dad and so I get no support from them. Life can be really difficult sometimes. Sigh.......!"

Vallee l'Ibie, Lagorce, Ardèche, France

Order : Hemiptera
Family : Cicadidae
Sub-Family : Cicadinae
Genus : Lyristes
Species : Lyristes plebejus

This was definitely my favourite find from my recent trip to France. Photographing cicadas is never easy and to find one drying out with fresh colours and still with its exuvia was a real bonus.

Vallee l'Ibie, Lagorce, Ardèche, France

Order : Coleoptera
Family : Carabidae
Sub-Family : Carabinae
Genus : Calosoma
Species : Calosoma sycophanta

These guys were having a ball recently as there were so many Bombyx disparate (L.dispar) caterpillars around. They are one of the favourite meals for both the larvae and adult beetles.

Plateau des Gras, Bidon, Ardèche, France

Order : Neuroptera
Family : Ascalaphidae
Sub-Family : Ascalaphinae
Genus : Libelloides
Species : Libelloides longicornis

I've never seen one of these before. Unusual and beautiful insect about the size of a dragonfly. In fact when it flies it can be easily mistaken for a dragonfly.
