Wildlife in the Garden/Gardenchat


Yesterday's #gardenchat on Twitter was wildlife in the garden.  It inspired me to go out and take pictures of all the wildlife in my garden.  Unfortunately I picked the wrong day for wildlife viewing since it was almost 90 degrees with over 85% humidity.  Everyone seemed to be hiding in the shade today, including all the humans.

#gardenchat is held every Monday night at 8pm central time on Twitter.  It's a great way to meet other gardeners, have garden questions answered, answer other people's garden questions, or just have fun!
Garden Spiders are early this year, must be because of all the tasty mosquitoes

Nice photo of your pond. I could do without the spider photo :)

Ouch, I think you need more spiders! Love the flowers and the bees.

I really do need to get a decent camera! I tend to take pictures of spiders, but I've never really got a good one of them smiling!

It took about 5 tries to get the picture of the spider. It kept looking blurry and everything else in the background was clear. Spiders creep me out, but I am glad they will eat some mosquitoes for me. Can't go outside without giving blood.
