Where The Wild Things Are

This evening while working out in the yard we saw several critters, some regulars and some surprises. The list included two praying mantis. We even watched one catch and eat a fly. There are several caterpillars hanging out in the dill. The large black and yellow spider has moved from the east to the south side of the house. Several pill bugs which Elizabeth likes to carry them around as "pets". Honey bees and bumble bees continue to argue over the flowers and after coming inside I could feel something crawling on the back of my neck; it was an inch worm. Apparently we have a healthy, thriving yard.
