Bugs

If I keep this up, people might get the idea I like bugs. (I hate bugs!)


Harvestman, also sometimes known as a Daddy Long-Legs (though to me, "daddy long-legs" refers to the Cellar spider). A popular urban legend claims that daddy long-legs are the most venomous animal in the world, but lack fangs long enough to pierce human skin. In reality, no species of Opiliones possess venom or fangs.  Although they are a member of the class Arachnida, they are not true spiders (order Araneae); they are more closely related to scorpions and camel spiders.

This particular specimen appears to have lost a leg.



Many people see an orange and black butterfly and think "Monarch". Well, this isn't. It's not even a Viceroy. This is a Painted Lady butterfly, also known as a Cosmopolitan butterfly. It's in the same genus as the Red Admiral butterfly that I posted previously.
