Insect season!

25 10 2011

Summer is insect season in Zimbabwe. This leaf mantid or Phyllocrania paradoxa was waiting on the verandah door to be photographed when I got home this afternoon. I will see if it is still around tomorrow and try for a better background but they don’t usually hang around when relocated.

beautiful. How about some jacarandas? Or those trees near Willowmead/Herbaceous/gym, which have bright fluorescent yellow balls of small blooms…and very dark almost black bark. that would be nice too.And how are your roses, or is it too hot?
