Bugged by inconsistency

It's official, I'm thoroughly inconsistent. Yesterday I was delighted to find that the hens view earwigs with voracious enthusiasm. Then I came in and spent ten minutes rescuing and trying to photograph a grasshopper. You can see it if you peer closely at the middle of the picture. It's a field grasshopper, chorthippus brunneus, I think.

Ah yes, I hold my hands up to this kind of inconsistency. One minute I am delighting in the butterflies in my meadow. The next I am crossly squashing caterpillars munching my brassicas.
