The Blue Tailed Skink Lizard at Victoria Peak Hong Kong

I spend a lot of time at The Peak as we call it and Victoria Peak to everyone else! bio diversity is not a phrase that you would associate with Hong Kong but we do have our fair share of bugs and nasty creatures (and don't get me started on the snakes we have).

This is a gentle creature but it is not that common at the Peak and I tend to get quite excited when I see one... the Blue Tailed Skink.


The nasty blue and orange poisonous winged bug that kills spiders

I have always been a bit wary of this spider killing winged insect in this image, the usual rule applies in the insect world, anything that is brightly coloured can be very dangerous indeed and this blue winged oranged legged insect is quite common at Victoria Peak and I watched one day in morbid fascination as it took out a much larger spider in less than 2 seconds which suggests it's venom is fast acting and lethal... best to keep away then.....


The amazing skull head caterpillar at Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Brightly coloured but not lethal (as far as I know) I have always been fascinated by this caterpillar, clearly it's bright colours suggest a decent defense mechanism against creatures bigger than it who see it as a tasty morsel... but what about that face.... pretty darn scary


The quite horrifying Giant Centipede at Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Reminder | This is a poisonous bug

I really hate the Giant Centipede | the stuff of horror movies and another fairly common bug at Victoria Peak.... the ones I have seen seem to be around 6 - 7 inches long and they scurry really fast and in the past few years I have had to despatch 3 to bug heaven or hell as they had started running up my jeans.

My advice, keep well away


The awesome and rather gentle stick insect at Victoria Peak Hong Kong

Reminder | not even a remotely deadly bug

I love stick insects, they can be quite big and the really do look like a stick or twig and I am guessing much smaller bugs are terrified of them due to their sheer size.

Naturally like a lot of bugs, up close they can look quite terrifying

Oh my golly gosh, the simply amazing Pagani Zonda Absolute - this is a custom made car and is rumoured to be the only one of it's kind in the world and it is in Hong Kong!... oh... and yes, this is my picture, talk about being in the right place at the right time.
