Almost on a daily basis I am discovering a new creature in our garden so I thought I would try and photograph them all and regularly update as a separate post to my ‘Just Nature’ post. My favourite is still the abelhas and borboletas, especially the 2 abelhas (bees) that were getting jiggy.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

There are 2 wasps who keep on making a nest between our bedroom window and shutter. Hubby removes the nest and they keep on returning and build another. Imagine building a home then coming home to find it gone and just rebuilding it over and over again – 5 times now! They are not usually supposed to return once the nest has gone, they should give up and move on. We have tried a screwed up brown paper bag to deter them to trick them into thinking there is a nest already there but these Portuguese wasps are F clever. They must love it here as much as us! Maybe we will have to capture them in a jam jar and take them on a little drive to the next village and let them free.

Another day, another snake. I accidently stood on this snakey Joe. It was on our steps when I returned from a jog and I was so exhausted, I didn’t see it. Nearly shit my pants!

All skin and no snake!

Another wasps nest in the crack of our sun room sliding doors. I accidently disturbed them by moving boxes and got stung! It does amaze me how perfect they make their nest/hive!
