Description

Photographed this beautiful Damselfly in Agumbe. They could be found everywhere in the jungle. However not all of them were as cooperative as this guy :-D

The males would often engage in a close-quarter in-flight face-off , flashing the brilliant coloration on the wings at each other and flitting over and around the stream. Sometimes 3 males would flash colors at each other just few inches above the stream. It was such a beautiful sight. :-)

Couldn't get a decent picture of the female this time :-(

Description

Found this spider by the edge of a stream. She was waiting for the hapless victim - a struggling insect, a small fish or a tadpole.

There were many Water Striders( Gerridae) all around her. I was eagerly waiting for the her to catch a Water Strider which would sometimes come very close to her. But she didn't seem to be interested in them. I waited for more than 30 mins before I had to move on.

Maybe next time :-)

Description

Amboli bush frogs - In amplexus

There were lots of Amboli bush frogs in the area we stayed in Agumbe. We were surrounded by loud calls.. But spotting them is a different story..

We found 3 pairs of Amboli bush frogs in amplexus. All of them were found on the ground.

The calling males were perched on leaves. 1 male was slowly approaching this pair in amplexus.

I found 1 male just observing another pair in amplexus from 3 inches away. He never made a move. Their agreement seemed to work ;-D

The female would occasionally move with the male on its back. But nothing much happened that night.
