Another Bug!

It would appear that we have moved into bug heaven, as far my little princesses are concerned! They squealed with delight at finding cicada casings all over the yard. Imagine their joy at being shown a real live black prince! I know ... little girls and bugs don't usually go together,but in this case, it's a match made in heaven. Mini-Grissom is the nickname earned by my oldest dd, and she's declared that she's going to be a cartoonist and entamologist. Now ... if we could just convince the spiders not to come into the house, then we'd all be happy.

Some incredible insects visit my garden! Isn't it amazing how colourful they can be?! I'm digging the sun flare on the hairy spider photo, and the wasp was taken using my macro extension tubes. Want to get into the St Andrews Cross spider's face with the macro if it's a nice day tomorrow. Hope he's still there.
