Creepy Crawlies, longleggedy beasties, and things that go HOOT in the night

Just when I thought the Palo Verde beetles had gone, those large five inch long bumbling beetles of doom, they've had their sequel. Son of Palo Verde Beetle. Son of Palo Verde is a root boring larva, not just any root boring larva but a six inch monstrosity that looks a bit like a baby snake but has a horn on its head. Guess what showed up in my kitchen? Dear partner did the rescue this time, taking it outside with a fly swatter while it tried to wiggle loose. Also, and this is far more friendly, we have an owl with an impressive voice who sometimes visits near our yard. We'll be talking late at night, and suddenly - WHOOO. WHOO-HOO. I like the owl. They're neat. So I'll leave you tonight with another Inktober drawing of a tree who'd love to eat - er, I mean meet you.
