Yeah, we're seeing more of these green guys all over the place, hibiscus bushes, ti plants, the bird of paradise and just about everywhere. We have three of them that I have seen so far and guess where you see one there's always another!
Thanks once again for writing!
Aloha no,

This is a first: I got to the entry page at 2 am or so, and there were only 27 entries! Stopped by your gallery as I had the chance. I don't think I ever saw this photo so I just had to comment, now. Your have many GREAT winners there!! But if forced to pick a favorite, this would probably be the one. Fantastic, Stan!!! And sorry to be late in commenting. I do tend to miss a lot of shots, somehow... this is awesome! What a shot
