I See Red:)

All kinds of bugs are making their dramatic debut this season.
Against the green foliage the red looks striking.

Here's another. I did a bit of googling and found out from and Bug Guide that this one belongs to the
Pyrrhocoridae family. The colour made me gasp!

My (mostly red) dragonfly chime sounds so melodious that the dragonflies
find it irresistible!!!

The hibiscus with the variegated leaves bloomed for the first
time a few days ago.

Another Ixora is all set to take off! The red is a shade lighter
than the one that's been blooming for a long time.

The green Ixora berries turn red before changing to black.

And the blooms still attract a great deal of butterflies. And
wasps too.

Insects that colorful are ornaments for the garden as well.

Wonderful pics. Bugs keep coming for my ixoras and the flowers are spoilt;(

That is one cool bug!

What a wonderful splash of RED! I never knew Ixoras bore such huge berries, coz I always pick them for pooja. I gotta leave some on the plant and see. BTW, how long does it take for the berries to grow?

Nice shots of the bugs!

Now all that is the sort of red one doesn't mind seeing! A lovely post Kanak, what colourful insects. I like your wind chimes by the way :)

I also loved the birds and Lizards on the previous posts!

The pyrrhocoridae bug looks like the Cotton stainer we have in these parts.

Loved reading all your comments! Thanks a ton!

Chandramouli, I haven't kept track of that.But I suppose the berries will come as the plant starts to bloom.
