Nature’s pretties come in all sizes, shapes, colors and levels of cuteness and lethalness…
They say—no idea who they might be—that luna moths are difficult to find during the day. My Piano Man and I found two while hiking in Breakheart Reservation. Lucky…
This one was in the middle of a trail. I had to poke it a little to make it fly into the bush.
This beauty was just there on a tree looking totally stunning.
I almost stepped on this frog, but the force of its stare froze my foot in midair.
My Piano Man almost stepped on the slug—twice—f but the force of my screaming, “You’re going to step on a slug!” froze his foot in midair.
The itsy bitsy spider didn’t crawl up the water spout, but it did devour a bug twice its size.
This lady (or gent) was looking super classy walking around the beach in its yellow jacket ;-)
I asked this wee fellow not to pose—natural pictures are much chicer. It gave me a dark froggy look.
The first three pictures are from our trip to Massachusetts, last month. The rest I took yesterday and the day before. Friday Harbor is so alive… Wait until I take a picture of a couple of anthills. I swear they are the size of a New York City apartment. Actually, that’s a lie; they are bigger ;-)
By the way, aren’t “chicer” and “lethalness” wonderful words?
