Insects and Other Crawly Critters

I love tiny little living things. They deserve their own special
space here.

This cute little jumping spider came to visit, and was kind enough to pose for me on my bedroom wall. When I viewed this photo on my computer, I was shocked to see s/he had *four* eyes! I researched jumping spiders on the net, and found out that many spiders have more than two eyes. Some even have two rows of four!

I found this scruffy little guy grooming himself on an Allium blossom. See him trying to deal with his bad hair day?

That reminds me of some little messy dog whose eyes you can't see for
all the hair.  Very cute.

I'm just thinking, "Holy Crap, look at the detail!" I want to learn to do that.

In fact, I'm going to post this photo now, so hopefully, when I learn better, the difference will be obvious. This will be my "starting point" photo.

Hey! That's one of those happy hoppers, too :-) Just look at them
headlights.

And, I admire your ambition, David. I think you take really
great/fun pictures.

I THOUGHT  that was a hopper, cuz when I tried to take a better,
closer photo, he jumped away!  I knew when I took that photo, it
wasn't the angle I wanted.  But I do appreciate your compliment,
Ms. Coyote.  :-)

Here's a different kind of bee, who was sharing the Allium with the scruffy one. This has to be the prettiest bee I've ever seen. A ball of flying gold fluff.

Coyote & David,

Jumping spiders have some of the best vision in the entire animal
kingdom.

Comparatively speaking if a human had their vision quality, the
person would be able to make out newspaper headlines from a 1/2 mile
away.

Also the fact that they have multiple pairs of eyes and their eyes
are situated in a circular fashion around their head means they have
nearly 360 degrees of vision.

Cool! It's amazing they let us get close enough to photograph
them at all.

This cute little fuzzy tickler crawled around on my hand for quite awhile before I carefully set it on a fern.

Ha - I watched a music video this evening where the guy's hairstyle
looks like it could have been modeled on that little beastie!

I have a feeling that I wouldn't have enjoyed the music that someone
with hair like that would make...

I have too much bad experience with stinging caterpillars in
Louisiana, that I'm afraid I'd NEVER let one walk on my toes.  It's
bad enough when they fall on you out of oak trees.

That was a cool photo though.  Just gave me a little heeby jeebies
is all.

{Photography.66.16}: Coyote {coyote} Fri, 04 Jun 2004 21:17:40 CDT (2 lines)

I understand. And those are my fingers, by the way. I don't let just
*any* critter mess with my toes ;-)

--------

{Photography.66.17}: David {david} Fri, 04 Jun 2004 21:39:56 CDT (4 lines)

Oh, sorry, I had to go back and look again.  Those ARE fingers,
aren't they?  ;-)

Guess my paranoia was leading me to snap conclusions.

Heh. Nice pun.

I think he looks like he would make a good loofah, if he was bigger.

{Photography.66.20}: Coyote {coyote} Mon, 07 Jun 2004 16:01:13 CDT (1 line)

Ohmygosh. You're right! Ha! I've never thought of that :-)

In his happy little home :-)

HE looks like he's getting ready to jump off.  But I can't see his
bunjee.

He does! Ha!

This is a close-up of the photo in Garden, Fields and Woods. {Photography.26.759} I love its little ping pong paddles.
