Random Interesting Things but Not Minis

Occasionally I find something interesting to me that I want to share and so I decided to make this page for those things.

Really Big Bug
This bug just showed up on our back deck.  For those not familar with the US penny the wood post it is on is 1 1/4 inch wide.

In Aug 2012, I rescued a hummingbird from a spider web.  I have hummingbird feeders outside my desk window and the hummingbirds fight over the feeders.  Silly birds.  As they were fighting one of them landed in a large spider web below the feeder.  I rushed to it's rescue.  I had to work to remove the web from the wings and feet.  The web was quite sticky.
Here is the little guy resting up until he was ready to fly away.

Here's a picture of a squirrel I caught napping in a tree outside my front porch.
And then after I woke him up and settled in again
