No, I'm not sure. I didn't get to see the back of him. Hope it's not a gypsy moth!

(If it was up to me, I'd name it the bunny moth, 'cause I think he's definitely channeling a bunny.)

Have you seen a black widow spider from this angle? She was such a beauty!

Holy cow, May! Did you take that photo?!?

Yes, I took that picture. It's actually recaptured from the photo album I put together for my kids. I did a bit of nature photography over the years so I printed them out to teach kids about animal names and behaviors etc.

Awesome idea. Love your pictures. This spider almost looks unreal to me... I can see faces in her design! What a creature!
