We went to Dallas a couple of weeks ago and got to go to the JFK Museum, hence the first picture. (You may click on the picture to make it bigger.)
Found this praying mantis last weekend. Have only found green ones in my yard before, so it was nice to see a brown one.
These last pictures are especially for my mother-in-law. We found this on our front porch. It's a wolf spider with babies on its back. Enjoy, Mom!
