Don't Bug Me!

This little "monster" was hanging on the wall next to my back door!
The last time I saw one of these, I was a teen. My Pop found one in the garden.
We put it in a jar and I poked it with a piece of a carrot.
Those pinchers went right through the carrot!
This is a Stag Beetle. Approximately 1.75 inches in length.

Cleverly disguised, this rattler is outside NM Bill's gate in New Mexico!

Sky Friday

After ten days of rain, thunder storms and tornado warnings the sky has become crystal clear!
We can certainly use the drying out period.

NM Bill's house guest seems to be eyeing the 
"Granddaddy of All Root beers"!
(It's made with care)

Sky Friday

With a little imagination,
one can see a "French poodle" being chased by an ugly "ogre"!
(The poodle is wearing a backpack)

Tag Tuesday

Any suggestions on what this means?
I'm thinking "horses".
