Everyone wants a protected home environment, including wasps. Thousands of them invaded a corner of a porch at the reception center a few days ago. As you can see from the images, they were well on their way to building an empire and the situation was presenting problems with visitors. Our caretaker was to have removed them last night.

This harvest season seems to be a good one for spiders. I discovered this termite (I think) strung up in a web way up high, just swinging in the wind.

I spotted this handsome grasshopper caught up in a spider web (top image) and decided to come to the rescue. After releasing it, I looked around for the spider. It took a second for me to realize that I was looking at a spider because it had transformed itself into a neat cube (middle image), which had little resemblance to my expectations of what a spider looks like. After messing with it, it unfolded itself to show some legs and a very comical design on the back (bottom image).

As always, it was great to see another Swedish group at the Bosque under the guidance Mr. Haken, who represents TEMA. Haken with his friends, the pink dolphin.
