Today we shall write about: strange creatures.
More cabin reno work today - got the cabinets prepped for painting, Kat painted some walls and got started on the guest bedroom ceiling, and... some other stuff I can't remember right now. Back to harvesting tomorrow morning for the market.
Might be the last time, with the frost threatening to arrive any day now. We shall see.
We shalllll seeeeeeee.
Sorry, I'm tired. I'll get to my take on the prompt now.
I've observed to Kat many, many times since we moved here that Osoyoos has an impressive array of strange insects. Like, what the hell is this?
Another angle of his brother or cousin or... wife? *shudder*
Needless to say (but apparently I'm saying it anyway), the zoom on my camera was used to its fullest for both of those pictures. Thankfully neither creature got offended by my presence and tried to eat my eyeballs.
Anyway. Today I decided enough was enough. I wanted an actual answer.
After a bit of wandering around the internet, I came across this very helpful page - I'd link to their home page but there's a picture of a snake there and nobody wants that. Anyway, I'm pretty certain that I've got two pictures of a Western Conifer Seedbug - it looks about right to me, at least.
So, I learned something today. I don't think I'm about to become an entomologist any time soon, but I am fond of knowing what exactly is crawling around outside my home.
Apologies for the bug pictures today. I shall make it up to you tomorrow with something a bit nicer. Birds, perhaps.
I should stop typing and hit publish now. Writing when tired is kind of fun though.
