[jules' pics] just insects

James sends me out into the mosquito infested swamps for bug-safari, but when I return and show him the photos he dismisses them as "just insects". I wonder what he expected. These are about 6 cm long. Sneaking up on them was intereting. It made me feel a bit more like a hunter-gatherer and a bit less like a 21st century consumer.

I suspect they are the solitary (top) & gregarious (bottom) forms of Locusta migratoria

Don't be put of by the Japanese, but scroll down to the pictures. It seems quite comprehensive to me...
