Posted on

This is a continuation of nature’s creatures.
Part I was posted on April 6.
All photos are my personal collection. ~Vic

Grasshopper Image One
Just hanging out on the front porch.
10-08-2014
Grasshopper Image Two
Long legs and big feet.
10-08-2014
Butterfly Image Three
Walking around town.
Poor focus but, still beautiful.
07-31-2016
Spider Image Four
This was a huge web with an equally huge spider.
Also a poor focus. I was keeping some distance.
My phone didn’t want to coöperate.
The tan blur in the center is said spider.

Spider Image Five
Another huge spider, hanging from the eave over the front porch.
A light rain highlighted the web.
09-30-2016
Mole Image Eight
I believe this cute, deceased, furry thing is a mole but, I’m not totally sure.
The neighbor’s cat brought me a present.
10-21-2016
Preying Mantis Image Six
I nearly missed seeing this after finding the mole.
She is almost the same color as the table.
Preying Mantis Image Seven
This is the first Preying Mantis I’ve seen that was brown.
Most of the ones I have encountered, before, were green.

More to come…

    The Mantis would force me to leg it to the panic room.

      She IS big. I was so hoping she wouldn’t jump on me. I’d have s***!

      I like photographing them (webs), not walking into them. Every summer, I have to be careful on the front porch. LAWD.

    Nice webs, but the size of the spider is concerning.

      The Hinoeuma responded:

      You’re telling me! Hence, my distance and blur…
