Thinking of Spring:
I am not a snow person. I am actually counting the days until Spring begins (58 days!).
So, in light of my desire for Spring to begin, I decided that our first post would revisit some of the beautiful insect shots George has taken during the Spring/Summer season.
George would go out "hunting" for hours and come back in and say, "Let me show you this." I would say, "No!" and run. I really did not want to know what was lurking in our backyard. (This is the same man who can see a tiny spider on a leaf 3 feet away, but cannot see crumbs on the counter right in front of him.)
George calls this one "David and Goliath." That is a young goldenrod spider carrying that ant.
An Argiope (spider). The biggest spider I have ever seen and hopefully will ever see.
George would not let me kill it. :0)
So think Spring while you are shoveling snow. Maybe that will make it come faster.
