Dragonfly and woodpecker taken while hiking here in SD. The alligator and banana spider were taken hiking in Houston.

I've never seen a banana spider before. Are they very big?

Not super big. They are so pretty. I've never seen one till I visited Texas. They live in really humid areas and when you see one, you will see many!! They are not loners to say the least. I can't even describe how densely packed the shrubbery was with these spiders. The female is significantly larger than the male and is surrounded by many male "companions".

The trail we were on was through swampland and on one side there were alligators (saw one grab a crane bird) and on the other side were the spideys. Naturally, I posed the question, "If I were to push you into the swamp with the gators or into the shrubs with the spideys, which would you choose?" to my comrades. They unanimously chose the gators; banana spiders aren't deadly, but their bite is painful, and as densely populated as the shrubs are, there would be many a bites! The chance of survival is definitely higher... but so is the creepiness.

This should seriously be entered in a photo contest, BTW.

Here in Florida they grow as big as a hand.

Here are a few pictures of a moose I bumped into out hiking. Her coat is patchy and rough and she's a bit thin, both from a long Northern New England winter, but she's still beautiful. She'll be doing a lot of eating the next few months as spring is coming (although it's snowing today). At her feat was a little stream created by melting snow. I watched her for a few minutes and then moved on as not to annoy her both out of respect and my own safety, you can't tell because there is nothing for scale in the photo but her shoulder was just over 6 feet high.

Here's a caterpillar I found on my lunchtime walk today.


Are you sure this is art, not vandalism?

Pretty! I used to have ducks coming into my house, whenever I left the front door open in warm weather. The mama even brought her babies in.

The tree frogs are moving up into the patio again. They've been singing by the creek since mid-January, but I haven't seen any in the patio til now.

The carpenter bees are fainting in the shade. I take them into the sun and they revive rather quickly.
This one took off only a few seconds after I snapped this picture.
