New lens

I bought a new 18-75mm image stabilised lens last week. I have been putting it through its paces today and have been suitably impressed. Above is a photo of the kowhai moth caterpillar that the cuckoos have been feeding on.
Didn't want to get too close to these little nasties.
A praying mantis checks me out. This one was on the glass at the back door. I can't understand how it can get a grip on the glass with those feet?

Those horrible caterpillar's have a lot to answer for and I don't have any cuckoo's in sight! We had a potted one that was my eldest's birth tree and the caterpillar's really did some damage to it. It was quite sad and it never really recovered...lovely new lense btw!
