Crooked Acres Thursday.
Tell me what you guys want to see around Crooked Acres – I need to get out and about with the camera more often, and if I know what you want to see, I’ll remember to snap pictures of it.
I know we shouldn’t feed the squirrels, they’re nasty, nasty rodents, but MAN are they cute. (And strictly speaking, that bird feeder is meant for the birds, not the squirrels. And the peanuts are meant for the Blue Jays. Not that the squirrels care who they’re MEANT for.)
Creepy crawly section coming up (but only a few pictures – and none of them are spiders). Scroll fast to the next section if you’d prefer to miss ’em!
I’ll put a little space here.
Cicada. These things are just so hideous and look like they came from the depths of hell, but they won’t hurt you, they just look ugly. How many cicadas have I scooped up over the years and tossed back outside? About a million. The cats pick them up in the yard and bring them inside to play with; Dewey did it just yesterday. I think they like the way the cicadas buzz in their mouths.
Assassin babies, close up. These bugs are the freakin’ CUTEST. It’s too bad they grow up so ugly. (But they eat flies, so they’re always welcome in my… well, not IN my house, but around my house. I understand their bite can be painful, so I always take them outside when I see them in the house.)
Okay, that’s it for the creepy crawlies. I did say there’d only be a few. I feel like I haven’t seen as many spiders lately. Maybe I need to go looking for them!
Let’s put a little space
for the easily freaked out people
who are freaked out easily
by creepy crawly things.
Video! I shot this over the weekend (when Andouille was still here, obviously) – Roux has a favorite toy, the toy made out of dog fur, and she’s not sharing!
