Insects and creepy-crawlies / Re: Very large grasshopper for ID, please

 With the "humbug" eyes it certainly looks like Anacridium aegypticum. I didn't realise other species had those eyes.

In case anyone is interested, I finally tracked down an ID and it is Acanthacris ruficornis or Brown-headed Grasshopper.  I think it's a type of locust.

Insects and creepy-crawlies / Re: ID large flock of mating tiny beetles

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your suggestion.

As far as I have been able to find out, the St. Mark´s flies emerge in April, and this was late autumn.  Perhaps the Andalucian species behave differently? (Are they here at all?).

I was starting to think that perhaps Clive was right after all. I have got lots of ants crawling along in the same place!

Saludos

Photographed late September in La Janda.  It was even bigger than the Egyptian Grasshopper.  Despite trawling through over half of the photos in grasshoppersofeurope.com, I haven't been able to ID it yet, so hope someone here can help, please.

October flowers in the Sierra de Grazalema

Autumn flowering bulbs are a favourite at this time of year, but you generally have to have keen eyes to find them as they can be very small and well hidden. On the contrary the Autumn Buttercup can turn a rugged hillside yellow with its shiny, rich yellow, blooms. Autumn doesn’t necessarily mean colourful leaves … Continue reading October flowers in the Sierra de Grazalema
