Treasures in My Yard

One of my favorite things about yardwork is you never know what you'll find while digging around in the dirt or clipping back branches. These two were just a couple of the treasures I found this past summer. The spider was actually down in the grass, and I was quite lucky to spot him/her. I'm thinking perhaps they were looking for a meal.

The moth was also a lucky find. I thought it was dead at first because it didn't move an inch while I was clipping grass around the tree trunk. Unfortunately, I've been unable to identify it. It's very striking, though.

Finds like these two make all that hard work worth the effort.
