So… we have some VERY interesting wildlife around here. I took a few minutes to snap some shots for you. I’m just nice like that. 🙂
First up, we have a just a regular, ol’ green tree frog. It’s actually been living on the side of my house for the past week. Here are some pictures I took.
Next up we have the Green Lynx Spider. Dude. This thing has been living on my rose bush for about 2 months. They typically live on flowers of some sort as their ideal dinner is of bugs that like nectar. It’s very very interesting. Furthermore, this spider MOLTS! I have a picture (though not a very good one) of its skin it left behind on a dead rose. And, here are some pictures of the Green Lynx.
And last but not least, we have the Agriope Aurantia. It’s a HUGE black and yellow spider that decided to house itself on my back door. Actually, I have 2 females living on the side of my house. One on the door and one between the trashcan and the house. Ick. Ick ick ick. Seriously. I don’t even know what to do! Okay, they don’t really harm humans and their venom won’t kill us or anything – but frankly, I don’t want to get close enough to kill it. Thank the Lord for 12x zoom on my camera! Ha ha ha! So – here are some pictures of my new ‘friends.’
As gross as these spiders are… they certainly are interesting and cool-lookin’, huh? And by the way – if you want more info about the spiders and frog… you can just click on their names and a window will pop out with more information on them. 🙂
