PHOTOPAGE 376

   

   

 

  Late September 2008

I think I've seen one before, but I got a photo this time of the Golden tortoise beetle (376.11). Strikingly metallic, but tiny, these leaf eaters are able to change their color - the one here was at its um. . . goldenest :-)

The ritual immersing of Ganesh was evident on a smaller scale than last year here and the few small statues all appeared to be made of clay and quickly dissolved.

The Wolf spider (376.5) and the Jumping spider (376.13) are two spiders that rely on surprise, stealth and speed rather than webs to snare their prey.

376.5 Spider and Prey

The Bur Cucumber (376.8) is similar to the Wild Cucumber I found last time - these are smaller, the fruits in clusters and similarly inedible.

Beeflies, easily as attractive and interesting as the honeybees, these flies suffer association with other flies - Anyway, fly honey doesn't sound as appealing.
