Hiding in the leaf-litter

The recent stormy weather meant plenty of leaves to rake up, and with them a profusion of small creatures that fell with the leaves. Here are some that were new to me:
Bug - Lygus cf. pratensis
Weevil
About to take off
Leafhopper
Meawhile, someone took a look to see if there was anything edible among the leaves
I don't like cameras!
