One night I was trying again and managed to get the leaves of a plant against its background which did not look too bad.
I have no idea what plant this is. It is small and almost like a ground cover but with very hairy leaves which the ants seem to love for some reason.
Poor little locust!! So shy and trying to hide away from me. I have an idea this might be a Desert Locust which are quite common here in our gardens and is of medium size.
This was the srtangest fungi I have seen. It does not have a stem at all so grows very close to the ground and reminded me of potatoes.
They grow as a family and these were almost hidden by the grass. The largest of them (below) is about 5 inches in diameter and very spongy.
