Animals that I found whilst out for walks in the Ardennes, Belgium.

This beetle is playing dead.

This beetle made a squeaking noise.

I found this shield bug at La Roche castle.

This is a grasshopper who sat on my hand for some time.

We found a frog in the long grass.

My sister found this stripy spider on its web.


  1. Ooooh creepy crawlies, how wonderful!! Grasshoppers are cool customers by the looks of it and that frog is lovely! Did Evie scream at the spider?
