When familiarity or boredom with the ordinary sets in, i dig in deeper in the leaves, under the canopy, or just wait for whatever comes along. It is actually a world on its own, with the creatures living there.
This Odontonema strictum or firespike has been growing beautifully under the canopies of trees. In fact this plant is not watered or cared for at all. They just go on their own, self supporting. We just cut them before the start of the rainy season to replace the old growths. The cricket on it doesn't seem to be eating the flowers, maybe it is just appreciating them. Can you imagine an insect appreciating a flower? LOL.
This one is a very common sight in tropical structures. They even inhabit some dark portions of the house like under the cabinet or some corners. All my life i thought this is an insect, but i just see in the photo that it has four pairs of legs, so it is a spider! It walks on a surface as if it is always jogging, relentlessly moving wherever it went. Daddy long legs we call it, Pholcus phalangioides.
I looked above and there are spiders this big. This is midway to the canopy of the fruit trees. Its big web help it catch its food like a net. Insects are usually its prey. I even find some butterflies caught in spider webs sometimes.
And when i drop my sight to the ground, there are also creatures there like these very small ants. They are trying to pull the bits of coconut meat to their colony. A lot of them try to help each other pulling their big food. I actually watched them move the haul for about two inches. Some of them leave and others take their place. There is nothing insurmountable when everybody will help pulling through!
