Critters from my garden

I am posting here after a month. COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire in Bangalore and I am not stepping out. Today after lunch, I saw a beautiful footman moth in my terrace garden. I decided to have a closer look with my Macro lens and check out other critters. Here are a few critters I saw before the sun forced me in... 

Here's Nepita conferta - the footman moth...








One really tiny shield bug...



This one was almost invisible...


Then saw this really colourful long-legged fly...


Another angle...


A grasshopper...


I could find some moth eggs in the underside of a leaf...

An assassin bug?





Common housefly...









A shield bug...








Show stopper of  the day was this Indian Green tortoise beetle...













Hope you liked the post. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments section below...

  1. Well done it is amazing what one can find in a small area if you really look hard. We have quite a reasonable size garden, but everything is so dry that I am struggling to find much about which is unusual. We are also staying put and I suspect this might be the case for quite a while yet!! Strange year we are having. Love all your photos but I agree the Indian Green tortoise beetle is incredible, a totally new one on me.
    Take care and stay safe. Diane

  6. With your way of photography you can always have something to capture, even in the Covid war:):) Your insects look rather fierce and remind me on a fi sci movie:) The tortoise beetle is quite beautiful, but also that moth in the beginning of your post. Hope you won't let that virus ruin your summer! Many thaks for sharing this post with All Seasons, and have a terrific week ahead! Jesh

  27. Thank you so much for visiting the Marmelade Gypsy because it has brought me here. Your photos are exquisite -- so crisp and clear, so beautifully composed, such wonderful captures of life in your beautiful country. I loved the video and seeing these birds and insects in such crisp detail is like taking a peek into a world we can seldom even see with our own eyes. Brilliant. Thank you.
