Having been laid-off from my career, I am fortunate not to be unemployed. I have been doing loads of manual labor for pennies, which is good for my soul. It has put a damper on my birding, but I did get out on a couple family walks in the last week and took lots of photos. Here are some of the non-birding photos I wanted to share (Remember, you can click on the photo to enlarge your enjoyment.):
|Lady Bugs on Poison Hemlock|
- Poison Hemlock is a very invasive noxious weed that we battle each year in the riparian areas...we just need our neighbors up and down stream from us to battle them with our same vigor.
|I'm not sure which moth or butterfly this caterpillar turns into, but it sure was freaky-cool! If you know what it is, please tell me!|
|Here is a pair of those dang Two-stripped Grasshoppers, just making more of those plant-devastating pests. "I hope that Garden Spider or a bird eats the both of ya before ya have any more kids!"|
