Our compost bin is a "hot commodity" for a Sewanee
Scientist. She was thrilled to find in it, the right stage of larva,
that will grow into Black Solider flies.
They want to grow them my the thousands in a lab and are collecting
eggs that have been deposited in samples of variegated cardboard. (top left photo)
Eventually, the larva which is made of fat and protein will be
eaten by chickens. The University is aspiring to be self sustaining
with their garden and chicken flock.

Before we bought our land, we had a short list of wants.
Right at the top of list was "a water feature"; stream, pond, lake,
anything larger and more frequent that a puddle.
The hubby and I never discussed why we wanted water, we just knew we did.
There hasn't been a day, when we said, "Heck, what is all the water doing here?"
It's here for a purpose.
Some days, the purpose is solely to sparkle.

Nature comes in all sizes and as bugs go this is a BIG one.
The cicada just left it's shell and was slowly waking up to the world.
Once captured, it was well on it's way to our fishing pond to lure a
large mouth bass. Good eating for the bass.
