A dragonfly


The insect reminds most Japanese of the summer holiday in childhood.

When I was a boy, I used to enjoy catching this insect in summer, as well as cicadas and grasshoppers. I used to be very good at catching these insects.

Now, thanks to catching such insects so often in childhood, I'm rather good at battering cockroaches running about around the kitchen to death:-)

Hmmm...Sounds interesting. The dragonfly reminds me of a helicopter landing. This one looks big. Anyway, I've never caught one. I use to catch lightning bugs when I was a kid.

It's curiuos that boys in Japan have a lot of fun caught insects.

In Spain, my parents told me that when they were children in the villages where they lived used to caught butterflies and silkworms, it is a pity that now children only find fun with TV and Play station.

Jajaja, I can't imagine Macky, you so pacific and sweet torture the coakroaches in your kitchen. In any case, you do well, they are really disgusting.

Good chase and shot!!! =O))

lv2scpbk,
You used to catch lighting bugs? Wonderful!!! Before I was born, there are many lighting bugs in the country side in Japan, because the water there used to be cleaner. Clean water is essencial for lighting bugs, Hotaru in Japanese. Now we seldom meet lighting bugs...

Raquel,
How are you doing there??
It is very interesting that Spanish children used to catch silkworms. The worms in Japan are just used for making silk.
