The Ugly Bug Ball..

The weekend blessed us with mild temps and no thunderstorms. I showed my gratitude by going outside as much as possible.

Just look what I found!

The lowly cicada. Their voices reverberated through the woods

Not sure. But scary. I think she is a type of Orb spider.

My Ballet star!

There were also birds and chipmunks and squirrels and oh! I even had a hummingbird visit me while in the back yard. It was too elusive for my camera though.

I saw so many beautiful things I just wanted to dance!

Apparently so did my little furry friend. Be careful where you step this month!

We loved this movie when I was a kid…

I you haven’t been there already, stop by Dan’s place and have a cold one. Better leave off the glass though..just ask Dan.

  1. Looking from midwinter here in Australia, a marvellous collection. I must single out the cicada. My family thinks they look like overgrown flies, but I love them: so noisy on hot summer evenings, and so many different varieties. Maybe that one is what we call a black beauty.

    1. And they are quite elusive visually. I normally only get to see their discarded outgrown skins. I feel this must hold a sigifigance for me since I have seen several of them in these past few weeks. I find it magical. I love their singing. As a child growing up that serenade heralded the long days of Summer and pure enjoyment. Thanks Steve!

  2. Some of those guys are creepy looking, but every living thing has to work to survive. Your pictures are wonderful. Good job suppressing the “ick” factor.

    Thanks for the shout. I hope your week is starting well.
