Night Creatures

It’s been a while since I headed out with a flashlight to see what was crawling around at night, so I headed out for a couple hours to see. There were Anolis gingivinus in various states, from sleeping to hunting and the Clonistria walking sticks that I can now reliably find. Perhaps the most interesting thing was a katydid with a strange, gelatinous mass coming out of its posterior. I’m not sure what was going on with that, perhaps it was injured, since the mass didn’t look anything like katydid eggs to me. A mass of aquatic insect larvae in a tree hollow (the last photo), were both beautiful and somewhat disgusting.

    Very nice!
    A good idea.
    I like your 3/20 photo : tha Anolis who sleep.
    A for the katydid, it’s possible that they are eggs?
