They may be in mating mode or are sharing the location of your best eats. A few weeks ago I was digging in my front yard to repair a sprinkler head and found about 10 turtle eggs very freshly laid. They were about 10 inches deep and there was no clue above ground that they were there. I am about 500 ft away from a man made lake. The local herpetological people told me these are an invasive species and I should dispose of them.

Okay, I'm clueless. What is it? I'm getting used to lizards and frogs along with no seeums but that looks awful. (OT: Joy, joy! I have a little tree frog visiting me in Cocoa. He's not as green as Jack was; he's got more brown on him and he's bigger so I suspect he's older. But he sits on the railing at night in front of the apartment and seems to wait for me to notice him then he hops away. (Jack never did that; he posed for pictures happily!) I'm looking at a house by the side of the woods in the AM; if it works out, I will plant bananas in the yard and keep my fingers crossed Jack's buds come a courtin'.)

Phooey. They don't sting according to what I saw. We had things like that that built weird nests in our buildings in MD; they hurt nothing other than spiders. I realize my experience was up north but do I need to fear them now when living where it's hot?

Note: This female turtle, more than likely has been injured by a lawnmower.
The shell has been split and has grown together nicely....

Exclamation Re: Surprise Visitor! Share your bug and little critter pictures with me!

I think I will wait to trim this leaf.



Peucetia viridans (Green Lynx Spider) maybe?
◕Redish coloration indicate this is female.
◕Eye arrangement is fairly recognizable and hard to mistake.
◕They are covered in conspicuous black spines, and the femurs have many small black dots. In both genders, the legs are usually a translucent green color, with yellowish-orange rings at some of the joints.
◕This species has the ability to change colors based on habitat, so the legs may be translucent reddish-pink in some specimens.
◕This spider does not spin a web for prey capture. Instead, it sits and waits for prey to come nearby and then pounces on it with lightning speed and agility. It may also actively stalk its prey, running and jumping from branch to branch with ease, which is how it earned the nickname “lynx spider.” Though they do not use silk for webs, they do use it for drag lines and for creating their silken egg sacs.

All bees in my area seem half-sized, half-as-smart and half as many as usual.
I'm sure y'all have seen and heard stories why...
