More than a week ago I cellphone-snapped a shot of this funny-looking flying bug in a drop of water on my bathroom counter. He was gone the next morning, either flown away or eaten by one of my many geckos.
Retirement in Costa Rica does include living with bugs and this year’s “pre-rainy season” seems to have included more than usual for me, especially flying insects around the lights at night. I sometimes just never turn on the light in my bedroom at night to avoid being bothered by flying insects when in bed. 🙂
We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics. ~Bill Vaughan
See my photo galleries: More Insects – OR – the separate Butterflies gallery. Insects are truly amazing!

Do you have screens on your windows?
Yes Ronalee, but tropical houses are not “sealed” or caulked so that it is easy for insects to get in – plus we live outside as much as in, meaning our doors are open much of the day when home, especially the sliding glass door to the terrace. It is the “price” you pay to live with nature in paradise! 🙂
That’s cool. The only bug that really freaks me out are large cockroaches.
