I like bugs. Maybe not all of them, but I take a liking to bees and spiders and mantises and beetles and small crawlie and flying things. Not that I like every crawlie – a cockroach in my sink means my husband is doing the dishes. And spiders do not belong in the bathroom, so sorry. But there is just such beauty is some of these creatures, even if the beauty is somewhat well, unconventional.
I’ve been visited by a number of small friends in the past few weeks, usually while hanging out in the yard with my not-so-small friend Two-socks.
She and I play catch for a while, then when she tires of that game, I play with the camera a bit. Sometimes there are willing subjects about.
I guess it is a bit weird for me to be talking to bugs. But how else do you get them to look at the camera? Sometimes Two-socks gets jealous and starts squeeking her toy to get my attention. She tries to keep me ‘normal’. Good dog!
If anyone has better identification of any of these small critters, please post in a comment.
