Here are some pictures of a few of the creatures and critters around our farm.
A green frog (we are actually keeping her in a terrarium in our house)
An orb weaver spider – see the zigzag in her web?
A monarch – Did you know you can tell if it’s a monarch or a viceroy by checking if it has a black band across its bottom wings? If it doesn’t have the band, it’s a monarch, if it does, it’s a viceroy. This is a monarch – no black band.
Some kind of sulphur butterfly
A praying mantis – it is actually eating a bumblebee – see its head in one claw and its body in the other? (Gross!)
And here is Jinx, our cat, with spiderwebs on his whiskers. He doesn’t look too pleased to have his picture taken.☺
Which picture was your favorite?

I liked the spider picture. Gross, but really clear!
Thanks! Yeah, I know, it is kind of gross – but neat!
Abigail’s favourite: the pink flower – sulfur butterfly close-up
Aunt Luci’s: Monarch butterfly – I like the brightness and lighting
Those might actually be my two favorite too!
Those are neat!!! The ‘orb weaver’ spider is the kind we call the ‘zipper spider’!!! I love those kinds!!! 🙂 🙂 😛
Oh, that’s a good name for it – that’s because of the little zigzag in its web, right?
