Mini beasts

Mid summer is usually quiet on the bird front & although various mammals provide some distraction, i like to at this time of year, explore the macro world. Its really hard for me to leave the big lens behind at home & travel relatively light with my 150mm lens, monopod & macro flash system. I am always glad to do it though, when i can wander through the long grasses, chasing butterflies & stare at the multitude of flies & insects visiting a bramble patch. The results of this Sigma lens never fail to impress me. If you haven't already read my review, you can read it at my main website.Apologies if the captions are wrong, please let me know if you can identify them.
Common blue Damselfly?

Bloody-nosed beetle

Small Heath butterfly.

Burnet moth (not sure which one)

Not a clue about this one!
