Odds and ends - Part 9
This bug was so small I could hardly see him on these Bouganvilla flowers. A stinkbug in its developement stage.
Towards afternoon, the rain clouds came up thick and fast.
Caterpillars, soon to be moths, were all over these pretty daisies which they were feeding on.
Some bug lost his skin......
The smallest of crickets.
These gecko's only come out at night that is why their skin is so pale. This little fellow was crawling over my kitchen floor looking for bugs. I sure hope he got rid of a few mosquitoes for me.
