More critters

This guy/gal was hanging out one morning while I
enjoyed my coffee on the deck. (It's a katydid by the way.)

Discoveries / Lake life part 2

There were several discoveries made during the
weekend. Daddy found a huge turtle on his way back
from picking up fishing worms. WHY he brought it
back to the lake, I'll never know, because they
are everywhere. But being the "cool" dad, he did.
Showed it off and then they let it go.

(This is jumping ahead a few days, but it's all about
discoveries.) The day before we left, I noticed a
bunch of flying bugs. LOTS of flying bugs. So we went
to investigate. What they discovered was pretty cool...
well, to a bug guy and his kid, it was pretty cool! (I
hate that it's a little blurry, but it's a snapshot and
I love it.)

Cicadas!

They emerged today...kids thought they were cool...
I thought they were gross! There were at least 50 on 1
mailbox! I put them in a storyboard instead of posting
the individual(gross) pictures! You're welcome! :)

When Daddy comes home and says...

"Look what I brought home"...I usually take a few
steps back! I've been "tricked" before with a creepy
crawly critter and have learned my lesson! This time
though, it was pretty cool. Mr Praying Mantis was an
awesome critter and so curious! If I could have gotten
a picture "in focus", I would have let him crawl his
way onto my lens, like he tried to do. I did get some
cool shots of him though.

"Psst, hey you, up there...come a little closer!"

His eyes really were 2 different colors. We couldn't
figure out why.

You can really see how big he was in this picture!

What happens when you tick him off! Hi-yah!

Kinda gross, but cool too

Trying to get a good picture of my hummingbirds, I noticed this
little guy hanging on my patio table. Not a big fan, but it was a
cool distraction...



Now back to learning patience on the little hummer buggers!

Father's Day

To all the Dad's that I love...a few from yesterday.

I guess they're not called butterfly bushes for nothing!

Twice as nice

I'm not sure what the bug is in the background
but it is kinda cool.

This was not my favorite, but I like the moth that
snuck in there.

My goal today is to get the elusive hummingbird. He's been pretty shy when I'm around. All I want is a decent picture. Just one, I'm not greedy! :)
