Noisey little bugger.

This was what was making noise outside my window. I couldn't figure out if the noise I heard was coming from inside or outside. I could hear the noise and Ray couldn't. I finally got up from my computer and walked outside. I was barefoot and walking on the concrete right by Mrs. Black Widow's nasty web.

I looked for something big like a rat or some other rodent that might be trying to scratch his way into our home from the outside. I couldn't see any unusual forms in the little light falling on the concrete just outside my office. But while still looking I heard the muffled clawing-like sound again. I looked closer and couldn't believe my find. Thinking, yes, this will be my blog photo, I went back inside for my camera. I'd been wondering what photo I was going to post tonight as I hadn't picked up my camera all day today. I started shooting this 4 inch long flying insect doing what I don't know, but frantically doing it. My presence didn't seem to bother him much, nor did the full force flash on the Canon Powershot A650.

Damn, why didn't I find this insect last week when I could have used this shot for the "Blue" assignment.
