Crickets, Bugs, Butterflies and an Alien.

Continuing my summer macro photo round up – we start with what I think are a collection of Crickets.

I know this first one definitely is.

And I think these next 3 are of an early instar of some form of cricket.  This is very tiny – about 3mm long.

Then onto a bug…a Planthopper

And a caterpillar of some form – probably a sawfly.

Then onto the Unidetified Alien…I think it must be some form of nymph.

Any ideas please let me know.
