The animals in my backyard that interest me most are mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Last week was the first time I spotted a groundhog on my property. Occasionally a bird, such as a hawk, will fascinate me. Recently, I found a dead insect that had such amazingly vibrant colors I had to grab my camera.
I used my Google skills to determine what kind of bug it was. In the course of my research, I was amused to find websites named “What’s That Bug?” and “BugGuide”. Imagine my disappointment to learn that I held a Florida Predatory Stink Bug. The words predatory and stink dismayed me although fans of the Tennessee Volunteers will be offended by the word Florida too.
