This cricket is a familiar sight in many flowering plants in our garden. It is slow and doesn't get really scared with my presence. But when really agitated it just jump or fly away. It seldom do that, most times it allows me to take its many angles. This time it is caught in the act. I watched it when it was still alighting on the flower, waited till it ate the flower petal.
Stingless bees also love the nectar of the Turnera subulata. Actually, many insects love it, although the rest of them are so quick to leave without letting me document them.
This cotton bug, Dysdercus cingulatus, can also be seen in many flowering plants and weeds. I don't often see them in this flower but now it stayed there for a very long time. Its long proboscis never retracted and for a long time just inserted deep down the flower throat where the nectar is.
A nocturnal hawksmoth, but its voracious larvae sometimes never leave a leaf for the plant to continue life, in other words the larva normally never leaves until the plant is completely bald.
This is an exoskeleton of a spider, but i didn't see the owner within the vicinity of its discarded clothing.
