The small stuff…

Still on the shady lane, we walked further.

A hole in the dead standing tree. Sometimes we find these holes that are lined. No idea what does this.

A blotch of dark color on the trunk. A closer examination is needed to determine what it is.

A beautiful crab spider! I believe it picked a good leaf for its camoflague!

I was sure this was going to be a fly or a bee, however it turns out no! It is a Derbid Planthopper (Anotia robertsonii)! Previously, I had thought all hoppers had their wings folded over the body. It seems there are always exceptions to the rule, eh!

Here I found this tiny egg casing. However, when I first saw it I had thought caterpillar. I bought it home for a closer look.

Of course it is in a jar now among my other pets. I hope it hatches. Also you might notice the other little egg next to the larger egg casing.
