Lanternfly, Pyrops ducalis

Characterized by wavy, filamentous tails and elaborate head protuberances. There are more than 12,000 fulgorid species. They are avid plant juice suckers.

Called thus owing to their bright usually contrasting colors. Their coloring varies for each genus but the colors are bright enough for them to earn their name, despite the fact that no lantern bug actually emits any light!

Blue Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis cyanochloris)

Quick and agile climber, with beautiful back stripe across its eye and the vividness of the blue skin. 
It is diurnal and preys on lizards and frogs. It does not have venom, but can be quite aggressive. When threatened, it will expose its interstitial skin (the skin between the scales). Its bright blue skin gives it its name. Relatively common across Southeast Asia.

The ‘pit’ is a special organ in between the eyes and the nostrils. It senses body heat from animals and gives the snake a ‘picture’ of that animal. The snake can then hunt for its prey. 

Deadly beautiful lovely!

Subadult of Orange-necked Keelback (Macropisthodon flaviceps)

This little Keelback fell from treetop into the pond just a few inches from me, almost scared me to death when it swims frantically across my boots. This is semi-aquatic snake inhabiting streams and swampy areas near primary and secondary forest.

Emerging Dragon (Odonata)

Most of a dragonfly's life is spent living under-water, breathe through gills. Dragonfly nymph have gills located within their bodies. As the nymph molts, it grows longer and longer wing-bud covers over the abdomen. When the nymph is ready to go into its amazing metamorphosis, the wing pads over its body are about half the body length. 

The nymph crawls up out of the water and molts one last time, emerging from its old skin as an adult with functional wings. The emergent took hours.

Banded Flower Mantis nymph (Theopropus elegans)

Praying mantis is the only insect that can rotate its alien-like head almost completely around! House flies can tilt their head slightly but not to this degree. This flexibility helps with their hunting.

Face to face, portrayed insects before whose survival strategy of disguise, masked in so perfectly with their environment that predators simply overlook them. An insect never ceased to amaze.

Given its semi-fossorial habit, it is seldom seen, the species is only known from six specimens in two states of Peninsular Malaysia, so nothing can be inferred about the population status or trends. 

Beautiful creature.
