Been finding cicada shells everywhere. Here's one with the insect still in it.

We had some flies, and we have a pet spider. Pet spider is only welcome until she lays eggs... then not welcome.
This is a fly that flew in to a tupperware tub and stay there. Seemed perfectly preserved, and I've been thinking of more things that I can make a picture via using the scanner. Sometimes the next photographic subject just buzzes up and lands in your lap, so to speak.
We have some berries planted in the back yard, and in an attempt to stop them turning into a bramble, they are stacked vertically. The first berries of the season are starting to ripen. It looks like this little guy is protecting the berries - at least they haven't been eaten by anything yet. (Must be careful though, last year some of the berries had fruit fly.)
Since summer is coming, we tend to leave the windows open at night (with flyscreens). This beetle was trapped by stupidity. I took the flyscreen off and photographed it in place before it eventually rolled away.
After leaving the window open all night last night, I found this massive mozzie up against the window sill. I assume it's a mozzie anyway. It looks like a mozzie.
It was one of the first properly humid nights and dewey mornings of the season and I was walking to the train station. The sun was hitting the spider web from behind at quite the right angle. I had to shoot this through the fence as it was too tall to lean over.
