Caterpillars obliviously feeding at night:



A cone-headed katydid peers over a leaf, perhaps drawn by the acoustic signature of the caterpillars' feeding:



Whilst the other caterpillars remain occupied and otherwise oblivious, the cone-headed katydid quietly captures the closest caterpillar:



Mating stick insects camouflaged amongst the fallen sticks which often become captured in tangled masses before they reach the forest floor:



Hairy longhorn beetles mating (Desmiphora fasciculata):



A stinkhorn fungus (Phallus sp.) is an ephemeral part of the understory landscape, its beauty a stark contrast to its odour, which attracts a variety of flesh flies:



A beautiful canopy mosquito (Sabethes cyaneus) shows off resplendent iridescence as it floats above the forest floor inviting courtship from surrounding males. The paddles on the legs remain something of a mystery though they are supposedly integral to their courtship displays:



On location in Manu national park:



Thanks for looking and commenting,
Paul

Yes. Always beautiful. I was just thinking with the first cone head katydid pix... "it's stalking caterpillars!" And yes, it was.
