This friendly cockroach was sitting on our bathroom wall the other night. It didn’t scarper when I approached like most do, but instead seemed to take an interest in the camera.
The picture was taken with a long shutter speed to get the background effect, slightly blurring the roach in the process. But nevertheless, it’s the kind of image that could send a chill down many a spine.
Along with cockroaches we also have several geckos of various sizes, a couple of rats, troops of industrious ants, many mosquitoes (some of them have a fondness for living in our wardrobe), and a huge spider. Quite a menagerie.
