A bike around the park

It was a three day holiday this weekend so Saturday we did the usual shopping and then Ebi-kun had his football lesson, I went along for a gossip with the other moms. Then Yesterday we went to Shinrin park, it is a government run park with a great cycle path so we took Ebi-kun's bike with us and then daddy-ebi and I hired bikes for the day. Usually when we go to this park we end up staying near the one exit so we decided to explore a bit since we had the bikes...

I always end up taking photos of things that I have no idea what they are with the intention of looking them up but then I don't get round to it, so if you know what anything is, give me a shout please!

Ebi-kun spotted this mukade at the side of the cycle path, it was a good 15cm long and evil looking. I have never seen one like this before, I have heard people complaining about finding them in the house and I always thought they were talking about the little horrible things we get, about 5cm long and black, if I saw this in our house I would be out of there.

No idea what this little fella is.

Ebi-kun was in grasshopper heaven, this was about the 5th one of this size that he caught, he was a bit annoyed that we hadn't bought the bug box with us.

Pretty flower...

OK, I know this one, bamboo! Something so peaceful about bamboo forests.

And another random, I have no idea what it is pic. It was a lovely day, we were all shattered by the time we got home and all ended up going to bed early - country air, it does that to you.
