left and below: our neighbor dog Prynze helping himself to the blackberries that hang over his back fence, late summer 2004.  he is such a good boy.


nice little secret decoder spaceman unearthed in the garden after a big rain.  you turn a little wheel on the back and he gets different combinations of openings in his eyes - full moon, quarter moon, stars.  pretty psychedelic.  3/4" high

venus flytrap eating five flies at once - what a big pig
at left, summer 2004 - indoor wildlife: venus eats five flies at once (all caught within a few hours) - BRRAAAAP
below: also summer 2004, venus chows down on a rather big muscular spider.  ugh.  she's vicious.  on the other hand, we hardly ever have to feed her.  she ate an entire wasp late this fall.
right now (february 3 2005) she's busy making a flower... photos to come when it opens!
venus also grabs big fat spiders if they don't move fast enough.
