I saw a white squirrel in Highland Park in Baton Rouge last Sunday. I'm determined to get a pic of that little dude.

While out caching in Katy, this morning, we were greeted by a plethora of hungry ducks.

My mom called me this afternoon and wanted me to come over and look at some "giant wasps" to figure out what they are.  I told her to snap a picture of them and email it to me.  I had no real reference for how "huge "these were from her picture.  But looking at the coloring, etc. I determined they were called cicada killers.  That, in and of itself, is a little scary.  These have been flying into her screened in porch area and she killed them with some sort of wasp spray.

I met her for dinner tonight and she gave these to me.  So I took a picture with a reference for size.  The article says they're not dangerous to humans and rarely ever sting.  The even show some idiot holding one -- with a cicada in its grasps.  http://en.wikipedia....ecius_speciosus

The stinger on the ones on the top show well in the picture.  This goes in my big category of of Nopes.

Cicada killer wasps.  Basically harmless to humans.

THAT'S AWESOME!!! Looks like a Lynx to me, way cool!

Guess Baytown is a pretty 'wild' place, huh?

Spotted a "Cow Killer" ant (actually, a wingless wasp) on the trail today near Pirate's Booty.  I remember seeing them all the time when I was a kid, but not so much in recent years.

How did you manage to get it to slow down enough to get a photo?

He (she?) was boogieing along pretty good, but I managed to snap a couple with the iPhone that weren't blurry.

I thought that only happened at work.  Wait.  I'm thinking of Groundhog's Day.  Nevermind.

We always called them velvet ants and steered clear of them.

I almost stuck my head in this web while cahcing in Hong Kong.  I think it is a Great Wood Spider.   It was huge!
