Endangered Invertebrates

Endangered Inverebrates
I saw an article on 8 of the UK's most endangered invertebrates, and this image immediately came to mind – we always hear about all the large scale ecological disasters around the world that such small things as these can often go unnoticed and unappreciated. The threatened species are from top to bottom(excluding the crushed bits!) – Small Tortoiseshell butterfly, New Forest Cicada, Bog Hoverfly, Shrill Carder Bee, Hornet Robber Fly, Tansy Beetle, Rossers Sac Spider and the Ladybird Spider.

Here are some close ups:
