I found this cricket nearly dead in the basement, so I put it in a container, it was gone in less than an hour. Pinned it out, then took a 20 file stack. Not very much dust to touch off. Pretty pleased with this stack.

A new kill just now. First time I have seen one eaten alive. It looks like he's trying to kill it at first but can't reach. The he sucks its abdomen. It was still alive as he probed and stuck the head.

That fellow is so small it's hard to identify for certain, but I suspect it is an aphid rather than a fly.

found some aphids on a vine.


They don't last long. I didn't expect a mealy bug to eat them though.

I think you put your best group shot on the other thread and best individual shot on this thread. Like the distribution.
