You have been warned! This post contains pictures of bugs and spiders. I’ve never seen such a big variety of insects as there are here in Panama, so I’ve had a great time with my camera and especially my macro lens. As I sorted through the folders of saved photos, I pulled out a few of my favorites to share.
One advantage to having my “office” outdoors – I get a lot of interesting visitors. There are tons of bugs here but they tend to be very mellow and not aggressive. I think I have only been stung/bitten twice in the 3+ years I’ve been here, once when picking a lemon and didn’t see the little wasp sitting on it, and I must have pinched him, and another time when I was reaching into a shrub that had a bee nest in it. That sting was so mild I wasn’t even positive I’d been stung.
This is what I have to share today, and I think that’s all the bug pictures for the moment. The winds are howling again today and I’m trying to decide if I’m getting out my bike. I won’t go far though, since coming home through the headwinds will be challenging.
Oh look! a little bug just walked under my phone … 😀
