They're Hiding Everywhere!

Was trying to get a beauty shot of my Echinops ritro that is just coming into bloom for my Learning to Garden with Barbara website (, when I spied the following little insect - no not the little flying one toward the top right, the sneaky earwig that had wiggled in between the bracts and was having a rest between meals. I've never seen that before. Between the earwigs, Japanese Beetles and slugs that have learned to climb my 60 cm (24") pots and then proceed to climb another meter and a half to munch my fancy variegated Brugmansia - I'm just glad I've got lots of different varieties of plants and that they aren't all equally as tasty to these visiting creatures.
