on tuesday i discovered this tarantula hole - i looked in and saw her scurrying around.
i've been intrigued ever since. on wednesday i went back and she had spun a web over the top.
i poked around (regretfully). on thursday she was sitting on top of her hole -
i was too slow with the camera and she quickly scurried inside.
on friday, nothing.
she spun another web. i'm starting to suspect she's going to have babies.
i left her a little flower bouquet to say sorry for destroying her web earlier in the week,
and also to say congratulations on the babies,,,
i will keep coming back to see the activity at tarantula lot #1.
tarantula lot #2
i found another one. this one is in the midst of heavy brush and grass - i may not even find it again. i got lucky on this photo - i was actually taking pictures of flowers when i noticed the gorgeous oklahoma brown tarantula and to the right, her home!
and now some flowers. this is called "goat's beard" - it's starting to crop up here and there.
isn't it beautiful?
"ohio spiderwort" is abundant now.
"garlic meadow" was one of the first blooms of spring - it's still thriving and
the butterflies have gone wild for it.
"ragwort" is abundant too. i just love these names -
and thanks to my identification books i can keep up with them. :)
one of the funnier names - "scrambled eggs"
can you see why?
the frogs like them. :)
here i am on the outside of the living room window.
i love the reflection of "prairie hill" -
i could also see my husband doing dishes in the kitchen
and my dog looking at me.
