Strange scene on Hung Shing Yeh beach which went largely unnoticed by the hordes of day trippers. The stem of an Elephant's Ear tree near the sitting out area going up towards Sok Kwu Wan was covered by a strange mantle which turned out to be hairy caterpillars crammed together.

He's actually called Clarence, but sometimes he uses the name Oscar.

Shot on a rooftop in Yung Shue Long New Village today, on the tree and on red tiles.
It was almost one inch long and very patient, even when flashed from just a 1-2 feet away...

Nice shot, L-G, with that red tile background. It almost looks like blood.

Any idea what it is, Nancy?

By the way, I just found out where you live the other day, visiting your neighbour to do a paid photo shoot. Nice frog territories and drainage ditches nearby your home.

Yesterday, I almost stumbled over at least a dozen frogs outside my home when returning home in the evening and that's right in the middle of Sha Po Village. Are frogs taking over Yung Shue Wan? I saw this horror movie as an impressionable youth, called simply FROGS...

My Missus stepped on a frog in the downpours (by accident of course). Unfortunately in a pair of 'Lamma shoes'. Yuk! Squelsh and pop.! Then Liverpool lost. Bad Omen I think.

Sorry, L-G, I am still trying to figure out the birds, reptiles, and butterflies here. Strange looking fly, though.

Nice shot, A-G. By the way, my neighbor nearly came toe to fang with a cobra the other night on the path up to Yung Shue Long, just 50 m from Spicy Island.

Odd looking fella. It looks like Callimenellus Fumidus, a type of grasshopper. According to Hong Kong Insects II, it is a rare wingless species, found on rocky shores around mean high water mark.
