    I always feel nervous when I take photos of critters in case they bite!

    Oh those are cool Pip, I can imagine! Look our for the Praying Mantis and Walking Sticks, cool to watch from a distance.



    This guy here took a half hour freeway ride on my car. He nestled himself into the windshield wipers and held on going freeway speeds. I made a new friend that day.

    The soul can split the sky in two, And let the face of God shine through.
    But East and West will pinch the heart That can not keep them pushed apart;
    And he whose soul is flat -- the sky -- Will cave in on him by and by."

    Pandora, I don't think I could have driven anywhere with that watching me! This is a praying mantis I found in my garden.

    Impressive creatures, I hope that was a zoom lens! They also, besides a bite, have razor sharp legs. I find so many unusual bugs in the yard each year, new never seen before. I hope the aliens that might arrive someday are not of the giant insect kind, they are brutal to their prey, we might be done for. I have heard but refused to watch the video, a praying mantis can kill a hummingbird, how horrible is that, beasts!

    Those are neat pics, PiP. Bugs are something that I try to admire from afar. They give me the willies, but some of them are certainly pretty.

    Ugh! These bugs look like they're about to jump of the screen at me!

    The one with the carrot is the worst though. Quite right, Ethan! Scary is an appropriate word for it. Its size alone is rather frightening.
