Red flower

We saw many flowers like this, however most of them were up on the trees where the vines tangle around and go up into the canopy.   This vine was growing on the floor next to the dirt road and we could take a close look at it.  Many ants were on the flower, and some bees were visiting it too.

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).
