Warning!!! Do not look at this post. It is lethal

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Lethal

Of course you know me, I am going to post something lethal.

There is a story to the photos.

I was doing a bit of gardening, weeding here and there, planning on expanding the size of the garden and moving the rock border.

Well, I worked out what I am going to do and started shifting the garden border rocks.

Much to my surprise there it was, all ready to have a go.

I hoped it would stay as I replaced the rock and went inside for my camera as I don’t carry my camera when I garden. For those who need to stop, here is a pretty picture of my garden

As you can see I am stretching out the post so those who are afraid of lethal insects can stop now, close the post and sigh a big relief that they weren’t scared out of their wits.

Those brave souls who have decided to continue on, let’s get to the photos of a Mouse Spider, a common spider but seldom seen around my garden.

Oh yeah, one gardening tip is to always wear gloves as you never know what you may encounter.

Are you ready?

Here is the Mouse Spider all fanged up and ready to strike

Some mouse spiders have a very toxic venom which is potentially as dangerous as that of the Sydney Funnel-web Spider. However, few cases of serious envenomation have been reported. Unlike funnel-web spiders, the mouse spider is believed to use less venom and possibly even “dry bite”. https://australian.museum/learn/animals/spiders/mouse-spiders/

Sometimes it’s hard………

……..being a Swallow

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Swallow

There is always washing to be done,

after that drying in the sun,

invite friends over for some fun.

Say goodbye, a good time, one of the best

But now it’s onto building the nest

Yes that’s right, soft feathers we need

and soon it’s babies to feed

three fat babies crammed into the nest

sitting around and getting fed is the best

The day is over and we are quite spent
’tis wearying being a parent

A busy day tomorrow
so enjoy the morning
with the Welcome Swallow

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Nightmare

OK You had to open this post didn’t you?

You have been warned.

Notice the word prompt?

Yes it is NIGHTMARE

not mine

I think she is lovely

even though you can’t see all of her

Thanks to the brave souls who just love nature

Here she is

You wonder how she can scrunch up and fit into small space
