Bull ant in bush.
I found this bull ant on a large bush that was attracting loads of different insects. Once it realised it was noticed it stayed very still. Some will get all aggressive and others try to hide or not move and not be noticed.
The photo in which it's facing down it was standing very still, trying to not by noticed. I suspect it was in the bush hunting insects.

Insect attracting bush.
I have found this year that a certain type of large bush that when flowering attracts loads of different insects. Lots of Orchid dupe wasps, various types of flies, various bee types and other insects. Here are a couple of the decent photos I got.

Orchid Dupe Wasp.
Yesterday Mum and I found some bushes that had started flowering and they had lots of these Orchid Dupe Wasps on them. I've never seen so many of these wasps! There were also several other types of insects on the bushes.

I saw this large cocoon near a road. It's on one of the I beams that a guard rail is mounted on.

I don't have a steady hand so I'm very pleased with how sharp this turned out. It's so good I cropped it at 100% size and I can't tell!
I love hover flies, the way the move and do things is great.

This ant (same type as the video but different area) had a much smaller ant attached to it's foot! The small ant seemed to be dead.
