Bugs In Bolivia

Although we live high up and are supposed to be above the rain forest bugville, we still have our share. We have already posted a few spiders, scorpions, and other creepy things. But here are a couple of shots taken this week.

Notice not only the size of the moth (wingspan about 8") on Caleb, but look at its eyes. There is no photo work here, and the eyes are not doing that because of the flash. We took the picture because of the demon eyes!
The thing about having girls after six boys is that they tend to be Tom Boys. Patience and Joy both got 'Bug Boxes' for Christmas and love to catch critters and put them in it. This little guy jumped on Joy when she was outside, and then stayed on for probably 15 minutes. Joy was convinced that the bug loved her.
