Common Earwig (Forficula auricularia)

Another sight I wouldn't have seen if I wasn't out checking the moth trap. This earwig was happily munching away on our Agapanthus flowers. They may not be as pretty as the bees and hoverflies etc, but they are striking insects and very cool to see away from the damp and dank spots I usually see them during the day.
