Description

haven't got out that much this month. My folks called me to the kitchen and showed this insect to me. I stepped out and got the photo. It was a pretty good sized beetle with some green maybe it is kind of hard to tell because the lighting was not helping in any situation. This was my best photo out of the whole bunch. Had quite the set of mandibles on it and had long antenna. It was one of the best finds at this new house. I am starting to see more and more things here it is funny; we didn't have nearly as many insects at the other house but this place is full of them which is weird. We barley have any plants out here but we do have a lot of good hiding places for things. It is just very strange that we used to have all the greenery at the other place and very few insects at times but this is the most I have seen in one location. It is cool I will give it that.

Description

My aunt and my mom found this guy last night after it fell to the window seal on our kitchen window. He was weak but when I went to photograph it; it was still alive but soon died. It was a beautiful cicada. This one was a real beauty. I have not seen this species before. The facial patterns are really cool. They almost remind me of a green colored Darth Maul from Star Wars if he was green and black instead of red and black. I don't have many cicadas on my life list but it is nice to get new ones when I can. This makes species 1,006 for me. Wonder what else I might see this summer at this new house. This one is much smaller than ones I have seen in the past. It was only about an inch in a half or so.

Description

Okay normally I don't post dead things but this one was really a shocker. I thought that Eyed Click Beetles were small like the regular click beetles but boy was I wrong. These guys are huge!. I have never seen one in person before so this was a real treat to know we have them here in Texas. I am not sure which on this is but this was a cool one. As my aunt would say it's a man eater. Not really but it is rather large. This was by far one of the coolest observations from any of my data collection treks.
