  7. You know what else you see on these critters? Little (parasitic? hitchhiking?) mites that live under the tergites and make brief appearances to do the hundred...er...foot dash and then disappear again. Now that's a mobile home for ya.

    1. i didn't know that!
      too bad you couldn't hold a magnifier up to this photo and SEE the little parasitic suckers!
      OH, i need a better camera!! :)

  8. An added something to watch out for next time! I have yet to take photos of the mites because they move so quickly. (For little critters, that is. I think I could easily outpace them if they were chasing me.)

  14. What an amazing shot! I bet Milo would love to play with this! I thought of you today when we were out back, (in the more wilds of my yard) still nothing like you have but we stumbled on some poor sad little creature (embryo) that will never come to life...but it was really hard to tell what it was. I shall take a photo of it tomorrow if it's still there....truly a very cool find!
