I’ve seen these on the roads in the last few days. My first thought was June bugs, but they must be cicadas.I found this one on the back lawn.
I saw two beautiful spiders in the garden this morning, but when I got close they ran away and/or curled up into a ball. One was orange and the other wasn’t. This is as close as I could come.My other fail at photography has to do with hummingbirds. This morning I saw one fly away from the morning glory (yes, one tiny vine has persisted even though I tried to root it out) and rush to the cardinal climber vine. It was followed by either three baby hummingbirds or three big bugs that can fly really fast. Wow, do I fail at nature. Here’s what attracted them.Not many flowers, but what there is, is choice. Plus beautifully cut leaves.
Yes, the top pic is of a cicada.
