Tersa Sphinx Moth (Xylophanes Tersa)

Apart from the colour, this fantastic little caterpillar is identical to the brown coloured Tersa Sphinx Moth (Xylophanes Tersa).

Sometimes you just know you're being watched..!!

Sometimes instinct tells you there are a set of eyes watching you, even when your back is turned.

During a recent visit to the bathroom in The Dive Inn, i had just that instinctive feeling (not that one!!)...

Oxygen and First Aid Equipment

At The Dive Inn all of our staff are trained in emergency first aid, and first aid equipment, including oxygen is on hand should the need arise.

Thankfully, this has not been the case so far.

Gekko and Moth

I think it's safe to say, if you're a moth, and find yourself in this predicament, you're not having a very good day...!!

Details of a Dragonfly's Amazing Compound Eyes...

Following on from the recent photo i added which showed the amazing structure of a Dragonfly's wing muscles, here's a macro shot of the compound eye of one of these amazing little creatures that i found on the floor of The Dive Inn (it was alive, although maybe not 100% healthy...).

Details of a Dragonfly's Amazing Muscleature...

I found this huge (in relative terms) Dragonfly on the wall of The Dive Inn and managed to get within a few CM's of it to get this macro shot of the amazing muscle structures that power its wings.

Profile of a green fly...

I've not idea what species of fly this is, but it certainly isn't a Blue-Bottle!!

Caterpillar of the Autumn Leaf Butterfly (Doleschallia bisaltide)

I found this VERY spiny caterpillar crawling over the dive shop floor.

I've been trying to find out what species this is, but so far without any luck.
Whatever it is, it gives the impression that it shouldn't be messed with...
