Praying Mantis

Spotted at Palo Alto Quaker Meeting House. How appropriate! (Praying- geddit?)

 

Neat Tree!

Tree!

Big spider on web
 

Arachnaphobics beware

MASSIVE spider on the stairs up to the apartment.

 

Funky Fruit

Saw this in Cuesta park. No idea what kind of a tree it is but that's some very spacey fruit.

 

Overachiever

What a showoff Bougenvillia is! Not one, but three different blossoms. Way to make the other flowers look bad.

 

Supermoon

Ducks and Trucks

Followed a pair of mallard ducks around the d school. The chase culminated with them going under a hedge to get away from me (or possibly to have sex).

 

Beauty

Saw this lovely thing and got a snap using work's camera.

 

Brings back childhood memories...
