|I have a new favourite pet wildlife insect at our house, this is Bert the dragonfly.|
Bert follows us around, probably because mosquitos follow us around and Bert likes to eat mosquitos.
I have never seen an insect look so gleeful as Bert holding a mosquito with his front legs and biting it to pieces. (not in this picture, though maybe that is a mosquito wing in his mouth?)
Also he is great because his face looks like a cartoon!
Other recent creatures include a red dragonfly and a black dragonfly, who are less friendly or cool than Bert, lots of little leaping lizards, some sort of creature which we can't find but at night it says "uh-oh" a lot so it's named Spaghettio, a horse escaped from the neighbours garden, tiny tiny grasshoppers about a millimeter long, stripey caterpillars, a great big fat spider of some sort that lives in a hole in the sand, and a swarm of fire ants that dug their network of tunnels assuming our fence panel was a hard bit of ground for their ceiling, only to be flummoxed when it was lifted and they had to hurriedly redig the whole colony.
