The nature of nature

.


Dobsonfly

Yesterday as I was raising the flag I felt something prick my finger.




This Dobsenfly had been sunning himself on the flagpole halyard and I didn't see him.


Do they bite?



oh yes.


I guess it could have been worse...


I photographed this three-incher two weeks ago.


Never a dull moment at your National Parks.

Wow, it's bad enough watching out for ticks when you lay on the ground to take a nice photo. That's nearly terrifying! Don't show that to my wife!
