My Georgia Woods are full of goblins again this year. The friendly type of course.
The Saint spotted a scary sight on our front porch though. This Insect was sucking the life out of a Bee. Yikes, that was scary but most interesting as well. Thanks to Randy, I was able to identify this vampire type insect as a Robberfly. Ironically, he posted about one within days of us seeing this one.
I hope this video works. They seem to load in a strange manner for me these days. I was walking into the gardens and heard a strange sound. I went towards the sound and this is what I spotted.
YIKES! Another scary event happening right before my eyes! A Praying Mantis was sucking the life out of a Gypsy Moth! It was real eerie to say the least but again, I found this most interesting and watched until night fall. They were on a Cleome bloom.
This photograph did not turn out as I had envisioned. I was trying to capture the full moon outside the window and Cheetah high up on the Monkey Tree at the same time. This is the scary shot I ended up getting just before kitty jumped to the floor.
These few things should get you ready for a HAPPY SPOOKY WEEKEND, In the Garden...
Note: Cheetah kitty is bringing in a good hunk of money for the Humane Society with her photo entry. Thanks to those of you that contributed to the cause...
