So as the title implies it is time for a quick photo essay of some of the smaller things around us. We are some 16 days into our stay here and believe me, this is a tiny sample of the small life. Regrettably, as the camp books are all still packed away deep in the store, I have not been able to identify many of these critters, so any comment as to the unknowns will be most welcome...
A beautiful marbled moth
A Cape Wolf Snake, who sadly lost his head in a building accident, not, I am assured, killed intentionally.
A green beetle, possibly a Picasso beetle, anyone able to confirm?
A sudden rush on scorpions one morning, both Karen and I having the delightful experience of each having one fall on us from different door frames!
One of the Long-horn beetle family me thinks.
A wasp, so long ago seen, I forget which one..
Another wasp, if I ever see another Potter wasp again, it will be too soon!
One of said wasps family members
securing a caterpillar in the pot for the
larva to eat alive before emerging.
A millipede, species specific, I do not know, sorry no size comparison, my bad.
Some really beautiful fungi, many more of these to be seen in the near future.
A Brown House Snake, found in the bathroom.
And that is it for now, we will do another one of these as the photo library fills up.
Till next time...
