Just when you think you have seen every new and interesting bug, something else comes along. This one was on the floor the other night.
It wasn’t very big. That’s a quarter nearby for comparison
I put a glass over it so it wouldn’t run off. Is that front part the head? It used its feelers on the front to explore.
I got a clearer glass. It had no problem walking up the inside of the glass
This is one of the strangest bugs I’ve seen yet
When I downloaded the photos, I found a bunch more than I had forgotten about. I was house sitting for a friend who has a great yard full of flowers, so most are from there.
This beauty had wrapped itself up in a leaf on a heliconia plant in my yard
In my friend’s yard – I want to paint this one, interesting play of light
These interesting flowers look like big globes from the side
cool view of the pollen on the stamen
the ti plants were blooming
my friend also has cool spiders
another interesting bug that was on our wall one night
I looked up ti plant to be sure I spelled it right. It is Cordyline_fruticosa, has a number of other names, is from Polynesia, and is in the asparagus family. The rhizomes can be eaten, and the leaves can be used to thatch roofs, store food, or make Hawaiian hula skirts. Who knew! Click on the link. The article is short but interesting. Ghost repellent? Good luck? Lava sledding?
