Before I start my post, I would like to congratulate all my American
blogger friends and visitors on this historic day! Congratulations!
Every evening when the lights are turned on, hordes of insects
descend on them. Whether it's in front or at the back, bugs and
house lizards reign supreme. The lizards have a ball gulping
down several winged morsels!
I saw this lizard making a lunge at this moth. And what a moth!
The supposed predator quickly retreated, intimidated by the 'prey's'
I haven't come across a moth as spectacular as this one. The furry
bit on the back and the eye pattern on the wings will surely keep a
would-be predator at bay!
Tiny little spiders create a mass of web on the bamboo. This wasp
was entangled in the web and struggled to get out.
I wondered whether I should help ( with the aid of a stick ) but
later decided to see how it'd wriggle out of the situation. I
didn't have to wait long. It 'grasped' a dry bamboo leaf and was
free! I almost heard a waspy sigh of relief!
Up and away...
...but there are some who do not manage to get away. Here's
one hanging by a seemingly innocuous strand of yarn. If
luck does not favour, even a strand, rather than a tangle,
can prove to be fatal.
