This little one was found huddling against the inside of the garage door last night. We tried to convince them to go out on their own, but they were having none of it.
I guess I don’t blame them, the nights have been getting rather cool lately and I’m sure the garage was much warmer than it was outside. But it’s not safe for them to stay in there, so we resorted to carefully picking them up and relocating them elsewhere.
This photo is of Angela gently carrying them across the yard. A lot easier said than done as they were in constant motion the entire time.
I’m not sure what this guy is, but it caught my eye. Hopefully it’s not a bad bug.
Went out onto the back porch to water the plants tonight and found this guy hanging out in the pot of Wandering Jew. He may not look it here, but he is not small. His body, tip of his nose to his hind legs, is about as long as my hand, finger tips to wrist. Even so, I didn’t see him until I started putting water into the pot. I’m not sure he appreciated the bath.
Bumbles bounce with anticipation when waiting for Santa.
As mantis’ around here go, this guy was huge! He was about four inches long. Even so, it was difficult to get a good picture of him because he kept swiveling his head around to keep an eye on me and was lightly swaying in a non-existent breeze.
Saw this double rainbow today while on my way back home from running errands. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Every time I looked at it, it was even brighter than the time before — this, from the color-blind guy. I’m sure it looks even better to you.
