I love garden visitors don't you?
I took a quick photo walk around my yard and spotted a
few little visitors.
I found this sweet moth resting on top of a cosmos flower.
Fall seems to be their season.
Lots of different varieties congregate around my porch light in the evenings.
And of course the days are still warm enough for the flies. There are usually at
least 5 to 6 on a flower. They are busy trying to snap up the last nectar
of the season before the cold sets in.
I found this daddy-long leg perching on top of a seed head.
These guys are great in the garden.
Also known as Harvestmen these bugs are arachnids, but not spiders -- in the same way that
butterflies are insects, but they are not beetles. Harvestmen have one body section (spiders have two) two eyes on a little bump (most spiders have eight), a segmented abdomen (unsegmented in spiders), no silk, no venom, and a totally different respiratory system, and many other differences. Also not all daddy-long legs have long legs!
