Creepy Crawly!

Human beings are psychologically far more afraid of bugs than they are of driving a car, whereas people get killed by cars every single day, and there is hardly ever a story of people getting killed by bugs. Jeff Pinkner

I am amazed at the bug life in my yard and specifically in my little garden. 

Don't know what this guy is on my tomato, but I'm afraid he isn't a good bug. 


Spider-Man. He lives near my water faucet. We have a deal. I don't kill him and he doesn't move towards my bare feet. 


Yellow grasshopper. 


I think this is a flea beetle. 


Lightning bug or firefly. 


Bad cucumber beetle. 


Much welcome ladybug. 


Many I haven't been able to identify and will someday get by the County Extension office for help with. 


There's even a daddy long legs in my garden!


I think this is called a leaf hopper. He's so pretty! 


No clue what this one is, but odds are he's not a friend. 


This is just a sampling of the bugs I've found in and around the garden. Also interesting to see what I can find.
