Butterfly Image Three
Walking around town.
Poor focus but, still beautiful.

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.

Another huge spider, hanging from the eave over the front porch.
A light rain highlighted the web.

I believe this cute, deceased, furry thing is a mole but, I’m not totally sure.
The neighbor’s cat brought me a present.

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…
