Life among the debris ... an interesting shot. I wonder how a bit nut like that got broken.

oh and the little red bug--what are they called? I saw one today in Beirut.

Man made stuff decays and nature survives, that seems an uplifting thought :o)

Caçador, a little firebug especially for the caçador!

Joan Elizabeth, as you might have guessed from the firebug's size this is quite a huge nut. There was some railway tracks construction/renewal under way - all the old nuts were cut off by grinding (and of course I took this one home :-))

Mary Ann, a firebug. Usually they manifest themselves in huge flocks doing their typical firebugs thing (orgies? ;-)) They seem to live mostly everywhere up to 1000m elevation in the Palearctic ecozone (so not in the Americas, Africa, Australia and Antarctica) - and yes, the wikipedia article is very interesting, ;-) (the German one, the English one is a litte bit empty).

paulboo, yes, to me this photo had some futuristic connotation: civilisation broke down, bugs and weeds taking over.
