Bee Mine

I spent some time with the bees this morning… well, one looked distinctly un-bee like.

First noticed them while stalking my arch-nemesis, Guy Who Yells At Me.

More on that jackass later.

See what I mean about this last little fellow? Perhaps he’s just a little younger than his mates.

Luna

I captured (and subsequently released) a Luna moth caterpillar. Couldn’t help myself; it was huge. Easily the largest I’ve ever seen. And so close to his pupal stage.

He was the length of the mason jar.

His legs were nightmarish. Seriously. They have ‘faux legs’ that look harmless and then the things you see when he’s turned over, which grab leaves and… elongate.

Tell me that won’t give you bad dreams.
