An active and thereby difficult to spot butterfly: the Diaethria clymena (88 or 89 butterfly).
This is the Polythrix caunus known in English as the Short-tail(ed) Skipper. I spotted this one resting on the banister of the lodge.
It didn't move a muscle for quite a while so I was able to take several pictures. But since it didn't move at all, all the pictures just looked the same too.
The Short-tail(ed) Skipper is well known for its flat or spread wings as seen in the picture above. But if you look too long at this picture your imagination will also make you see other things. In my case I saw a 'lady' with her long legs closed.

The Peanut-headed bug (Fulgora laternaria) is one of the weirdest looking bug I have seen in my life. It is also one of the most fascinating creatures of the insect world.
Just recently I discovered something amazing inside the Fauna paradise: butterflies and moths. An unfamiliar ground for me as the insect world is much larger than the bird world. But curiosity brought me so far to also study and observe these wonderful tiny creatures. One of the first butterflies that actually 'triggered' my enthusiasm is the Olive wing butterfly (Nessaea obrinus)
