We have a lot... and I really do mean A LOT... of bugs/spiders/creepy crawlies here in central Texas. And I'm not too fond of many of them. Hardly any, in fact. I like the butterflies, dragonflies, fireflies, and oddly enough, Cicadas.
Alan spotted this one pulling out of it's shell on one of the uprights under our back porch and called me outside to take photos. It is the first one we've seen so far this year -- soon, the air will be filled with their crazy "buzzing" sounds.
