It's summer time, and that means more animals are finding their way into my house... because of me, of course.
I've got some new friends residing in my room (in cages) that I'd like to introduce you to.
First up is the cute one... the baby turtle. He's a painted turtle, caught in the pond in my backyard. I was squealing quite incoherantly for a few minutes upon his capture. He eats little goldfish and insects caught in the pond, as well as tiny crickets. Trying to get him to go after turtle pellets.Next is the house centipede, caught him in my dad's office!And the stunningly beautiful fishing spider. She's simply fantastic... and already munching up a big cricket. I havent measured her legspan but I think it's about two inches.I've got more photos of them on Flickr.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my camera and macro lens? Because I do. A lot.
