She may have been small, but she had attitude!

Macro Monday

Found this bug on a fence post out in the woods.
It's called a Wheel bug, this one is in the nymph stage.
They are predatory insects, eating "pest" bugs, like aphids.
Apparently, they are not aggressive, however if bothered they will stab you with their long hypodermic-like beak. The "bite" is known to pack quite a punch.
Since they are related to stink bugs, they too can be odorous.

Dogs on Thursday

It took Willow a moment to decide if she wanted the treat her Aunt Ionna got her.

Eventually, she ate the goodie up.

Love is in the air.

Spring makes me want to dance too.

Dogs on Thursday

We celebrated Ludo's 3rd birthday with yummy treats from their Aunt Ionna.

Cookie? Mine? Now?

Willow enjoying her share of the bounty.

Wait. Wait. Wait. He was so patient. The perfect birthday boy.

Macro Monday

This little green anole greeted me at my front gate yesterday afternoon. Then he posed for me too! I was really happy to see this native Floridian in my yard. We don't see the greens as often as we use to down here. Unfortunately, the larger, more aggressive brown and invasive anole is taking over.

Winter is killing me.

With winter being especially frigid this year, I had to resort to finding my buggy friends in the Butterfly Rainforest at the Natural History Museum. My patience is running very thin. Cabin fever starts to do crazy things to a bug freak's mind. Florida loses all charm for me when the insects go dormant.
