    Wow, wonderful, beautiful! We have a saying here I tried to translate: with awed amazement :-)

    Now that is a beautiful insect, Mark! And to me, it has no scary elements. Just beauty. Thank you for sharing during what can be long, dreary days. Hope you are well.

      Thanks Susan. Well enough. The weather changes extremely these days.

    Wow!! It reminds me a little bit of Graphocephala fennahi.

      Very different creatures I think. But we’re all related too. :-)

        I think you can find a commonality in every creature. 😉 But what I mean is the kind of colours. Have a nice weekend!

        • Mark said, on 05/03/2021 at 6:25 pm

          :-) Life, or intelligence, is the commonality I see. We are all animated by a power greater than the individual, though we (humans) have the possibility of realisation, or realising it. Don’t know about the other creatures, but can’t rule them out, being ‘creat’ures.

            I am also not so presumptuous as to rule out everything. So why not?

    That’s certainly a beauty, and it looks like a very nice place for a hike. Also nice that it didn’t mind the transplant.

      It’s been a few years now, seems they like it ok. All the same nature, and more. More exotic and sweet than the bush.

    This animal can’t defend except through its colours

    • Mark said, on 03/03/2021 at 11:01 am

      I don’t know, its proboscis is mighty sharp.

    They’re gorgeous, Mark! And skillfully and respectfully photographed, as usual.
