I’ve been saying in connection with the heat that at least one good thing about living in town and two floors up is that we don’t get a lot of insects. And I usually don’t, even with the windows and balcony door open at night.
The other morning when I got out into the kitchen though, I found this one crawling on a cupboard door in the kitchen.
Instead of hitting him with the flyswatter I managed to get him to crawl onto it, and carried him through to the balcony. There he sat down on a plastic footstool and waited patiently while I went back inside to get the camera. So before we said goodbye (i.e. before I got him to crawl back onto the flyswatter and then somewhat rudely threw him out over the railing to meet an unknown destiny), I took a photo.
But he did not give me his name, and the few names that did flutter through my mind do not seem to fit when I google them.
If someone knows, please enlighten me. He was probably ~2 cm, antennae excluded.
