Wolf Spider? The basement is a scary thing.
“Will you walk into my parlour?” said a spider to a fly;
” ‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I have many pretty things to shew when you are there.”
“Oh no, no!” said the little fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”

Hmm…leg missing in action
Caught by surprise at night. Hummingbird moth around hanging baskets. I didn’t have time to attach my SB900 so I had to use on camera flash, as you see in this harsh lighting. Bad image is better than no image. No that I know they are here in my new home in Taunton, I will be better prepared.
Hummingbird Moth (10PM)
In this pond of placid water,
Half a hundred years ago,
So they say, a farmer’s daughter,
Jilted by her farmer beau,
Waded out among the rushes,
Scattering the blue dragon-flies;
That dried stick the ripple washes
Marks the spot, I should surmise.
Think, so near the public highway,
Well frequented even then!
Can you not conceive the sly way,—
Hearing wheels or seeing men
Passing on the road above,—
With a gesture feigned and silly,
Ere she drowned herself for love,
She would reach to pluck a lily?
Edna St. Vincent Millay
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stand still.
When a hundred men stand together, each of them loses his mind and gets another one.
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Sometimes I am just to lazy to leave the back patio. So, I just wait for them to come to us. The lingering light was rapidly falling tonight, but not before a Deer wandered nearby. The night sky stood an inky canopy of darkness when it came back later on its journey home, a bit to dark for a good picture though.
In the past, declined seriously in many areas with loss of habitat and loss of nesting sites. During recent decades has been increasing again, undoubtedly helped by birdhouses in many areas.
“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.”

Birds are the most accomplished aeronauts the world has ever seen. They fly high and low, at great speed, and very slowly. And always with extraordinary precision and control.
Night time activity is in full swing in the back yard. The animals seem to gravitate around my back shed. Lots of worms and grubs available. Browning Trail Camera catches the view in North Dighton, MA
Another use for trail cameras is security. It is an inexpensive way to keep an eye on your property. Most trail cameras provide a time stamp on the photo and video so you know exactly when the image was taken. A friend of mine, Michael Panarelli, of Dighton, Ma, builds, or should I say, ‘creates” beautiful bird houses. One of which I hide a trail camera inside after a mailbox thief in Dighton was caught taking my mail items. My cameras were in plain sight, but not anymore. The bird house was perfect. I have other bird houses from Mike, doing their intended duties for our backyard birds.
