How exciting! I found a bug in my garden. Now, it is not a beautiful dragonfly like LondonYankee or TicTac post, nor is it like the spiders that Pat has been posting but it is an insect that is neither an aphid, mealy bug or a mosquito which seem to be the main wildlife in my backyard…..
I was out surveying my little block of land from the safety of my deck (I do not attempt the rickety wooden steps on my crutches) when I spied this little guy on the pot of a dead cactus (yes, I can kill cacti!).
These were taken with my point & shoot camera set on macro while I balanced on one leg!! I am surprised my hand was so steady! He was about an inch long.
