Just some of the things you can find
while walking in our yard.
You can go from cute,
to downright creepy
in just a few steps.
A Baby Bird.
This little guy is one of the ones from the nest that was in our carport inside the hanging hose.
One of the bunnies that we see nearly every evening, munching on the grass and always watching us too.
Yes, who doesn't think those little creatures are cute?
Now, this one is interesting.
Some may call this one creepy, but I have come to find spiders interesting. There are SO many different kinds in this area, it is interesting to find one you haven't ever seen before. And as long as they aren't the Brown Recluse or Black Widow (common in NC),
I can call them interesting.
Ready for the downright creepy?
This one gives me chills
every time I look at this picture.
First, it's long hind end is pretty long,
that long protrusion of a stinger type thing!
That IS connected to it.
I haven't had the nerve to research this much.
He really creeps me out.
I think it's because when I was taking the picture,
I thought he was dying, so not a threat.
And just when I was about to take another picture,
suddenly he rose up, flying at face level,
and then just flew off,
that super long sting-like thing
just hanging down while he flew.
Imagine that thing hitting you as it flew by you! CREEPY. I am getting chills right now.
These pictures are not all from the same day,
but they were all taken
practically right outside our door.
Ah, the joys of living in the mountains.
Sometimes, I would just rather see a bear.
