Having any kind of plant growth in your yard means you're going to be home to lots of little critters. And when you have a garden, your door is open a lot wider for things like this:
Back yard nature at it's best with that one. Does anyone know who those eggs belong too?
I let them out of the jar after their photo shoot, so don't worry.
My favorite thing to find in the yard has got to be a Praying Mantis.
It's really special to spot them, and scoot them back to the grass.
And then find them when they're gigantic, l O O king at you for crashing through their home.
