Explore - Insect Playground

September 2014

It was Paulo's birthday and we went exploring the surroundings of where i live. Paulo and Santi wanted to check habitats around hoping they would see a new species.
Me and Kitty, we just went along. 
It appeared as the day i started to be fond about the beauty of insects.

It took only a few minutes before they left us to sweep wider areas. 

We didn't want to cross that.

So on this corner of bushes, i was alone with this girl who has always been very uncomfortable (euphemism) about insects.

She didn't want to move much, she was just pointing at the flowers and tell me to take pictures.

So i did.

Until i see someone was watching me. 

Kitty was screaming out loud when i pointed out this little guy. But i was very curious. 

This part is when it realized that we were having eyes contact. or thousand eyes contact. 

In panic doing awkward moves while i was still watching him. 

I still see you, Jiminy Cricket.

It froze when i was walking around him. It pretended to be a leave. 

I really like to watch insect because they look like aliens. Or maybe humans always make the aliens look like insect, because these creatures have faces, but it is difficult for us to understand them anatomically. I think they look amazing. 

This kind has the same exact color like grass. It hanged on the weeds, this weeds grew beautiful spray of flowers.

There were many camouflages happening on this corner.

And of course, one of my favorite species..

I love it when dragonflies poses for pictures.

Of course, there were also butterflies.. 

So glad we arrived early enough to see these pretty creatures. 

Never have thought that i would have such a great feeling just to watch insects.
