With my disappointment in humanity still very much present I thought it was best to focus myself on animals today. Here are most of the visitors we had throughout the years in our garden, some were too fast to take a picture of. Above is the Eurasian Hoopoe which only visited once.
This huge and amazing moth was also a one time wonder for us, Oleander hawk-moth (Daphnis nerii) is more native in parts of Africa.
A praying mantis on our sewing machine :)
A snake right next to my bedroom window.
A very odd and big caterpillar, what a beauty :)
We've had several chameleons, they are so intriguing.
Sometimes a grasshopper hops inside :)
And in the Summer we often have turtles in front of our door which are treated with water and fresh lettuce or cucumbers, these guys eat very noisily and greedy :)
We also get huge wild swines in our street which is right below the mountain, I will try to take pictures next Summer, they are enormous and only come out after dark.
We have lots of bird visitors especially this year after I set up a bird bath, they love it!
The birds leave pretty feathers, for us to use :)
