We returned to the same muddy track we visited last week. This time there had not been an afternoon thunder storm, and as a result it was hotter. Nevertheless, there were still lots of wee beasties to be seen. The most visible were the red, green, brown, and black dragonflies. The reason that these guys were so plentiful was that there were lots of mosquitoes for them to eat. And, after having gorged themselves on my blood, these mosquitoes were bloated and juicy. Butterflies, moths, spiders, and bugs were also quite abundant. I photographed the head of a fly and discovered that it had compound eyes very similar to those of a dragonfly.
