My What Big Eyes You Have
This morning I had a little heart stress test when I went out to my car. I saw this HUGE bug just laying by my front passenger tire. It was all playing out in my head, I could see the bug take flight, its wings flapping wildly, the music from Jaws booming away in my head, it landing right on my face and cruelly devouring it starting with my nose. Ok, yeah I know that was a bit dramatic but I promise that is what I saw. I almost peed my pants, then I realized that it was dead. What would any loving mother do at this point? Exactly what I did…I took a piece of paper and scooped it up, then scared the heck out of my teenager! It was priceless. I was stumped and had no idea what kind of bug this was so I took pictures and went to facebook for answers. I found out they are quite common around here and they are called water beetles or bugs. I guess I have never seen one this big!!!
