More life around the yard

There's always something happening in the garden here, and the great thing about moving to a new area is that there are so many new things to encounter. So far we have seen at least half a dozen species of jumping spiders (Salticidae) in our yard. Today we also spotted a colourful diurnal cockroach (Ellipsidion sp.) out enjoying the sun.

One of many jumping spiders active in the sunshine.

Another just passing the time. 

Ellipsidion sp. These cockroaches are colourful and active by day, not at all stereotypical cupboard dwellers.
