I found these in my backyard, this week:
|Once the birds are asleep, others get a chance at the birdbath, resting on the "shore", or even going swimming. This weevil is following the edge around and around, looking for the exit.|
|Slug and springtail on birdbath.|
|Algae on my bare cement, and snail eating algae.|
I checked the new BirdCam's photos, and was amused by this snail. I was fussing around with flashlights and the tripod, and the BirdCam kept taking photos as I moved around. And in all the bustle, in each photo, there was the snail, moving right along, and somehow not getting stepped on.
|Long slug, going places.|
|"Look before you slither."|
The mosquitoes have been voracious these past few weeks. Even though I slather myself with repellent, I'm still scratching bites. I tried burning these mosquito coils outside the door to discourage them. I don't know that it helped.
On the plate with the next night's coil set up, I found this small slug. He doesn't seem to mind the chemicals in the coil. Later, I found him on the coil itself.
|"Did I hear something behind me?"|
The door stays open until late. A few critters followed me inside.
|Pretty yellow spider on the wall by my desk Update: Enoplogatha ovata.|
|Very small moth, ditto. (White-shouldered moth)|
And this: what is it? The BirdCam picked this up last night.
|Something in a hurry.|
Not a 'coon, not a skunk, not a cat, nor a fox, rat, or dog. It looks to me like a possum. I hadn't realized that we have possums here in the Lower Mainland.
And take a look at those toes!
I'm still sorting the ten-lined June beetle photos; I took 'way too many.
