    Meet a Grasshopper

    I have grasshoppers in my garden. There’s nothing strange about that. Who cares about a grasshopper? But they are, in fact, interesting creatures. Grasshoppers are a group of insects belonging to the suborder Caelifera. They are among what is possibly the most ancient living group of chewing herbivorous insects, dating back to the early Triassic,…

  • Time by the Sea

    Time by the Sea

    Time is precious. We often find ourselves running short of it or not using it wisely. We may dwell on the past or daydream about the future. We all have the same 24 hours every day. How do we make the most of our limited time? I can’t answer that, but TIME is the theme…

    That was Then…

    Below are some photos from Mantanani Island that I selected from my archive. The year was 2016.

    This is a land turtle, also known as tortoises, that I saw when I was out with my dogs a while ago. It was next to the roadside and quickly hid in its shell when I got close. I have only seen turtles twice here in Cyprus, once also in our garden, but I didn’t…
