A Florida Bestiary
I'm back home in London with Olga and Dave, and way too tired to write a full post. I didn't sleep at all on the plane, but I finished my David Sedaris book and watched two movies, "Identity Thief" (meh) and "The Place Beyond the Pines" (excellent).
In lieu of a real post, here's a collection of Florida critters, beginning with the wild bunny that appears from time to time to nibble weeds in my dad's yard.
Some of you asked what lubber grasshoppers look like. Here they are. Don't say I didn't warn you.
"Do you mind? We're trying to have an amorous moment!"
Back to cuteness -- the family of muscovy ducks down at the lake. Well, the babies are cute, anyway.
I was fascinated by these colorful damselflies. I took about a hundred photos before I got just the right one.
And then I found two mating, which really blew me away. Now those are some acrobatics! Insect kama sutra!
Finally, this colorful spider. I don't yet know what kind he is, but if I find out I will report back!
