Just attended an annual HOA meeting for our community in Kona last night, and it was packed. I suggested the HOA set maximum percentages on the number of homes that could be rented, and that seemed to be a new concept that nobody had heard of before.
Mostly people wanted to talk about the coqui, although we don't have those on my street. The only sound I hear at night is the ocean and an occassional car. I did ask about methods to control the terrorists, the band of turkeys roaming our streets like they live here, and I think they said it was OK to kill them. The problem seems to be how do you get those scrawny turkey legs into a trash bag.
But on to more pleasant things today, like the daphnis nerii that I found crawling across our front porch. Having never seen anything like this before in my life, I snapped a photo of the caterpillar. You would be amazed to see what it eventually grows up to be. You can read more and see more photos in my personal blog today at this link: Have You Seen an Oleander Hawk Moth Caterpillar?
