Looks like an ordinary backyard with a pond and a bunch of plants, right?



Lets take a closer look.

Here is a common orb weaver Neoscona oxancensis


Here is a honey bee Apis mellifera
Take note on the shape of the flowers. You see part of it going up over the bee's head. Cool adaptation to depositing pollen on the bee's head which the bee will deliver to another flower for pollination.


Here is a western yellow jacket Vespula pensylvanica


Finally, here is a fiery skipper Hylephila phyleus This guy eats plants, but there are a lot of birds around that probably call this guy dinner.

It's actually just an Olympus D-550. I was using the closeup mode on it. I want to eventually get a digital EOS, but those are expensive right now. I've noticed that many digital cameras get more vibrant pictures then regular film camera.

Anyway, my camera is a 3 megapixel and the picture has actually been reduced to 800x600.

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

awwww, no no no. Spiders are good to have around. They are your natural pest controllers and they work for free! They will do more good then any incestiside you will buy. If they are around, then that means there is food for them.
