Amazon blue insects

A couple of pictures of blue insects that I saw while visiting some waterfalls near Presidente Figueiredo, about 100 km north of Manaus.  While others were happily swimming and refreshing themselves from the tropical heat, I took some time to look around for insects (as I usually do) and was happy to found two blue ones.  I like blue insects, as my blog name suggests.  This photographs were taken in April last year!  I finally got to upload them to the blog.  I really have to keep up with this.

a few sketches

I’ve started sketching insects from the garden, here are a few.



We have a few floating plants in the garden pond.  The flowers only last for a day; they are pretty purple with a yellow spot in the middle (I will try to do a sketch with color next time there is a flower).



purple dots!
