The bug squad…

One thing I do notice about living in the tropic is the bugs are – well - dumb. No really. I have found I spend a lot of time lifting bugs off their backs and righting them on their legs. They wander off, without thanks and I suspect go and do the same thing again. What is that about? Clumsy or what? And why more so in the tropics? A dear friend did point out that maybe they wanted to die and my intervention could be pissing them off. Well, fine but how does one know it a bug wants to die or not? It’s not like they can speak. Anyway, this is one I saved earlier. Upside down bugs? Not on my watch.
