Moth or butterfly


Where is my food then.

Last night my balcony window had 15 of these tiny moths on the glass they had been attracted by the blue neon light of the zapper that is placed in the kitchen to zap the flies, I tried to get a photo of them through the glass but all I got was a backflash. the photos I managed to get! one last night after switching off the zappers and some today before it realized it ws being phographed.

The sun shine on the dried mango leaves

Unused bench made from the frons of the date palm. too many leaves are falling and the worker may get woken up.

So he decides to sleep in the middle of the path.
what had actually happened was he saw me walking down the path that leads to the other end of the Island but me I never stay on the paths nothing to see I look for grasses and reeds that's where the wildlife is, and me being me and take my time in case I miss anything I did not come back for 2 hours. In the meantime this worker fell asleep waiting for me to come back , only to wake up after I passed. He shouted after me money I need money, me too I shouted back.

The path leading back to the exit

tangerines and dates.
