I like these photos for various reasons, they will never win a contest or make me a million bucks, but I hope that you enjoy them.

As you may have noticed, many of my photos are of what some people call "creepy crawlies".  Well that's what catches my attention.  Who could resist a face like this?   -------->

I have a large collection of pictures of frogs and Canada Geese ( not together, tho that would be cool huh?).  I have managed to limit my urge to take goose pics but continue to shoot at any and every frog or toad I see.

Close, close, close-up of the candy sprinkles that you use to decorate cupcakes.  I have submited this one twice (UCC) but no one seems to like it as much as I do.
 
 

One day in May, Pam and I went to one of my favorite ponds and saw hundreds of toads in the pond mating.  Sadie had a ball chasing them back into the pond when they dared to get up on shore.  Check out her attempt. 
6 weeks later I want back and found the ground literally covered with these tiny toadlets.

Who needs  silhouettes of elephants on the African Plains when we have giant flies right here in Central New York?

I am fascinated by ants ( as long as they are not in or almost in my house, or for that matter, touching me).  I at first thought the ants were growing fungus on this branch.  I later found out that they are tending Wooly Aphids.  The aphids secrete a sugery substance commonly called honey dew and the ants feed on the honey dew and protect the aphids from mauraders.  The white "wool" is also excreated from the bodies of the aphids and is used for protection from predators.  It is apparently distasteful.  (and no, I do not know from personal experience)
