Common godzilla ant Camponotus compressus is a species of ant found in India and Southeast Asia. It is a frequent visitor to toilets as it consumes urea.It is one of the many species which tends plant-sap-sucking insects like aphids and tree hoppers. These ants stroke their antenna on the hind parts of these insects stimulating them to excrete a sugar rich liquid, called honeydew, which the ants consume. In return, they are known to protect the insects from predators like ladybugs. --For better resolution.

Mylabris pustulata is a species of blister beetle belonging to the Meloidae family found in South Asia. Adults feed mainly on flowers from a wide range of plant families. The first larval instar is an active triungulin form that is a predator of soft insects such as aphids. While the young are often beneficial to crops by suppressing other plant feeders, the adults can be a problem when present in large numbers. Flower feeding leads to lower yield and this can be a problem in some leguminous crops. They are however easily controlled by manual collection.

This brown coloured species of Jumping Spider is sort of resident on the walls of my house terrace. Now that it is getting a bit cooler in north India, I see less of them now. Anyway, here is another macro of it taken with Ext Tube which always results in partial focus in my case.
