Stunning shots Tchuanye. Amazing colours on that cricket. Reminds me colour wise of some of our blue dragonflies here in the uk.
no3 looks like some sort of Earwig species with those tail pincers?
Superb detail on the caterpillar shots.....no7 in particular is awesome.
How big was the flying lizard?

Thanks Mark! The flying lizard is a young fella, and I would say its about 15-20cm including its long tail. Had to really zoom out to take the shot!

And a fine job you did too......you certainly have a great variety of colourful species over there, makes some of our uk species look decidedly plain in comparison...
