Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Summer Visitors…And A Standoff

With the super-hot weather this year, we’re seeing a lot more outdoor bugs. ::shudder:: But not all are gross, there are some I actually like. Like ladybugs, butterflies, lightning bugs and moths – even giant moths like this one; I have never seen one this big:

THIS ENORMOUS MOTH WAS ON MY WINDSHIELD WIPER!!!

His antennae are like fern leaves!! Nature is beautiful.

And then there was this interesting David-and-Goliath standoff on our window screen:

Big grasshopper vs tiny moth - they stayed like this for hours!

Who are you and why are you staring at me??

How about this crazy kamikazee bird?? Why on earth was he nose-diving to the ground???

Dive-bomber bird!! What was he thinking??

And this gigantic leaf –

Normally we don’t want to see any critters on our home-grown veggies, but this cutie was more than welcome:

Cute, fuzzy moth on our Swiss chard.

The gross bugs – yes I know they’re probably necessary evils but they’re still gross – have been awfully big, almost like the intense summer heat turned them into tropical bug sizes. When I see those I just screech and run away. Really!

And I just laugh and laugh and laugh at you! Heehee!!
