Is it an Alien or a Dinosaur?

This is a “Wheel Bug”, part of the Assassin Bug family. It eats other insects, including caterpillars. It has a fang on the front of its head that it uses to “stab” its prey. It WILL “stab” humans if it is handled casually or annoyed. The “stab” from its fang is very painful.

I encountered this strange looking creature on the bridge as we were crossing Sunday morning on our walk. I’ve never seen anything like this before, so I’m incredibly glad the shot came out so well.


Bud and Bloom



The bud and the bloom. The color is so vivid and rich. I always look forward to this bush blooming in the neighborhood.

Morning Visitors

I didn’t even see the grasshopper having a ‘chat’ with this beautiful butterfly until I uploaded the pictures on the computer. Communing nature.
