Farm - Part 6 Final

It is getting towards the end of the day and the moths are starting to flutter around. Many species like this Red Tail are found during the day and settle down at night.
The damselfly will also cling to its piece of grass until daylight comes again.
It is not often I find skippers although we do have many species here.
A very young cricket comes out of hinding to begin its evening song.......
...and a Lappet moth gets ready to go out and find food. It has been a good day and now time for me to settle down, watch the sun set and contemplate my finding of the day..... Tomorrow will be another beautiful day here in Africa, full of more exciting things to find and photograph.
