High speed insect

High speed insect

Observation - High speed insect - UK and Ireland. Description: Rapid moving insect. I picked it up and thought I'd inadvertently killed it, so still it laid. But after 20 seconds or so it rolled over and scooted off. This 'dead' behaviour was repeated when I picked it up again; presumably a deliberate strategy?
