Very nice, Toby, Brian.

Hard to pick one, plus, I didn't really take many insect images in 2016, but here is one:

All good shots, although Lord V's is the best of the crop.
This is one that could have been better, but I like it because it is quite a difficult subject - they move so fast compared to normal woodlice.

Not heard of Ant woodlice before, would have guessed it had moulted or something.

If you have an ant colony under a stone or a brick (sadly I don't in my very small garden, it was from my parent's garden) and you lift it up you see several of them. Sadly they move so fast that it is almost impossible to get a photo of them. I tried using something to shade it but no good.

I don't see the Golden Ringed often so I think this:

Actually, I only had one insect shot in 2016. Insect macro is not my thing.
