Other Insects This section is split into four sub-sections as listed below: Bees Grasshoppers and Crickets Other Insects A - L Other Insects M - Z These last two sub-sections are arbitrarily drawn, based on the number of images available for each page. Other Insects includes wasps, sawflies and ants, as well as anything else that has crossed my path. Care should be taken if searching for any orange/yellow and black banded insect as many flies, bees and wasps share this basic pattern. All of these sub-sections are organised alphabetically by Scientific Name with any Common Names also given. To enlarge a thumbnail left click on an image when the pointed finger appears (or double-tap on Touchscreen). This will also access a slideshow and further information associated with the image.
