The insects that have been about are mostly colorful, and noisy. The trees near our apartment (and the rest of Singapore for that matter) are loud with the sounds of cicadas, although these guys are elusive-- I have not seen one, only heard them. They are deafening. There are also a plentiful flight of butterflies, particularly all yellow and all black colored varieties. I haven't been able to get any good pictures of these. At the ceramics studio, I caught this picture of a beautiful red damsel fly.
Red damsel fly
Some of the insects that I have seen are quite large. Fortunately they have been found outdoors, and not in. Here are some examples:
A little difficult to see in this picture, but there is a very large spider in the center of this web. The spider body is about the size of a U.S. nickel, with the legs + body about the size of a silver dollar. One day on my walk about, I noticed a very large tree leaf (about the size of a dinner plate) that appeared to be suspended in mid- air. It was caught in one of these nuclear spider webs. Giant arachnids-- creepy!
Levitation? This tree leaf appeared to be suspended in air, trapped by a large spider web. If it could hold this large leaf (quite heavy, actually) I didn't want to find out if it could trap and hold humans, e.g. me.
Singapore garden snails-- they can be pretty large
They also come in purple-- oops-- actually this is a fine Chinese glass sculpture that Elaine acquired. The snail has some significance in Chinese culture.
