Monsoon beauty

One of the many bugs found in tropical Kerala. I always thought that with the monsoons bringing heavy rain throughout the day, I wouldn't get to see many bugs. But I was surprised at the number of bugs I saw - all of them have their own way of surviving the heavy rains by hiding under leaves, grass etc.

I have featured these little gems a couple of times, Thomas, and have another shot queued.

You have captured him in the pose I like very much...I imagine him as a famous Leaf Explorer!
Thomas Mathew: He will probably tell stories of a human bothering him with a camera when he gets back from his explorations Ray smile Thank you for visiting.
He's a real beauty! Nice shot!
Thomas Mathew: Thank you Elizabeth, I'm glad you like it.

What happens to the bugs. I know the big rain spiders run into my house.
Thomas Mathew: I assume the bugs prefer to stay out and brave it Louis. Thanks for stopping by smile
