  1. Had some time before my wife got home this afternoon so I strolled around the neighborhood. Spring is in full swing here in the desert southwest

    Be careful. Things in the desert have a lot of barbs, needles and sharp edges.

    And they grow in the craziest places. This cactus decided that right in the middle of an Olive Tree would be an ideal place to grow

    And bugs that like to jab you hide in plain sight

    I was freaked out by scorpions in Croatia. The locals thought that was highly amusing as that particular type are almost harmless, the sting can barely break skin on a human.
     

  6. Many of the creepy crawlies are kind of freaky when you start looking at them closely.

    The ones around here in Phoenix are not gonna kill you but hurt like crazy for a day or so
