Just a couple for today

The Safari didn't get far today but two 'convenience' trips out with Frank both times saw him come back with a hitch-hiker in the form of a Hawthorn Shield Bug nymph on his back! Are there loads about this year or was this fluke?
Here's the first and larger one, we didn't have a camera handy for the second.
The other day we had a Broad Boarded Yellow Underwing in the moth trap - bonny! But this one's a bit worn. A chunky beast.
Where to next? Mothy is on and we're hopeful that there won't be a soggy mess in the morning - no Wasps would be good too.
In the meantime let us know what's apparently overly numerous in your outback.
