Made in Portugal, part 7 (Creatures)

This blog was going to be called "Insects", but with 4 pictures in tonights edition and two of them containing either a gastropod or a chilopod, that was hardly the most encompassing of titles now was it?

I'd never seen so many creatures - be they insects, spiders or lizards (no decent pictures of these I'm afraid) - as I had during this holiday, one thing that struck me was how wasps would leave you alone, something I'm pining for now that our belated summer has begun here...

We christened these insects 'stupid bugs' for their tendency to fly kamikaze style into walls, swimming pools and holidaying Englishmen.

Easily the biggest centipede I ever did see
