Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring – For this week’s challenge, share a photo which describes what spring means to you.
Panama has two seasons, dry and rainy, so we don’t have spring. But we are currently coming out of the dry season and the rains are beginning again, so there is a new season to talk about.
With the return of the rains come new bugs. Right now it seems like “bug of the day” time. After the first good rain we had tons of little flying bugs. If they got inside they’d would land on the countertop or floor and just die. I visited one of the neighbors the next day and she had dead bugs all over her patio floor. After that night we didn’t see them again.
Then, a few days ago, we had black flying bugs. One of them was nice enough to land in my glass of Costa Rican money.
The next evening we were visited by these other interesting bugs. My friend said they bite very hard. Thankfully I have no first hand knowledge of this. But again, everyone seemed to have been visited by these on the same night and dead ones were on everyone’s terraces the next day.
The next night it was thee invasion of the June bugs.
But, if this a post about the rainy season, there must also be photos of rain!
This is the first post written on my new iPad (thank you Joel!) it is so light and easy to travel with, and I’m learning my way around and liking it more every day. But there may be a few things I haven’t quite figured out so ignore any quirks.
