Bugs? This is one thread I won't look at. They scare me to death, I can't even handle looking at a photo of one. eeks.
I have a pic of a pregnant praying mantis in the garden last summer, I bet I won't find it until after the contest ends!
One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth,
complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claim to.
Here's my creepy crawlers.

Neat. Tent caterpillars. I always loved watching them through the summer as they matured. They were always in just one tree in our yard; it was a mulberry. I noticed a young woolybear caterpillar in my yard yesterday. I am going to watch to see how wooly and fat he gets this fall; it is supposed to predict the severity of winter. They turn into such beautiful golden brown, dark brown and white tipped caterpillars with long hairs right before they hibernate in the winter. If I had a picture of one, I would post it.

All these entries are fantastic!
