And during the height of our dry season, annuals are only seen in very well maintained gardens and parks. Grasses at roadsides get totally brown. Flowers are very seldom seen too in normal habitats. Even residential gardes must be very well planned and maintained to get a semblance of normalcy, that is to produce some colors.
The insect above looks unusual with those very long hind legs. It looks still very immature because the wings are not apparent yet. Perhaps they are more of the predators than the prey, because they seem so obvious in that red background. Oh maybe it is preying on the mealy bugs or planthopper nymphs, which are on those whitish cottony stuff at the back.
I've been looking for some more insects. but they seem not to be around.
