Monsters in the Garden from Our Costa Rican Neighbors

Courtesy of Stew Holmes, here are some great photos of "bugs" found in his yard. Sadly, Stew and his wife Krystel have moved from Costa Rica back to Stew's home country, England. We miss them.

These are great representatives of some of the evolutionary artwork we encounter here in the Tropics. I'm talking about the subjects in the pictures, that is, not Stew and Krystel, both of whom are excellent artists in their own right, by the way!
