Fauna In Florida

Picked this up out of the Gulf but there was a critter residing inside. Can you spot him. It is a small crab-like guy just above the center. See his pincer?

These big birds never do anything, just sit there and stare out at the ocean. They stand their ground, too.

I have posted pictures of these lizards before. What I didn't post is they do cool push-ups for some reason and come in all different colors.

OK, I wasn't under the influence when I spotted this little bugger, I mean bug. It was walking without grace outside the door the other day. At first I thought an ant had found a goody and was taking it back to its lair. You really need to click on the picture to enlarge it to get a good look. On the off chance that I have discovered a new species I hereby name it turpissimus furis creatura, Latin for nasty fur bug.


  1. 1. Quit destroying the eco-system. What's next - leave your car running all night? That crab is gonna peck your eyes out.

    2. That bird WILL peck your eyes out.

    3. The lizards do push ups cuz they're bad-ass little dudes that'll peck your eyes out.

    4. You know what that little insect is gonna do to you.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
