    This bug has hung around around the back porch light for almost a month now--easily available food prey I suppose. However, my (almost) 4 yr old grandson thinks this would make a really neat Halloween costume. Apparently it is a female, so I suppose we can't call it Jason or Freddy?
    Want to suggest a name?

  2. What about "Frida"?

    With a costum like that he would scare the hell out of everybody :eek: 

    Very nice "portrait"!

    Nice "portrait"....they are odd looking creatures aren't they?!

    Name...how about something simple like John or Ralph? Or if you prefer a girls name....Hilda or Jane?

    Thanks for the comments. Morticia, Frida, Hida, h'mm. Yup, all are good but I have to go with Moricia, at least in the mood I'm in today. Who knows tomorrow?

    Geez, Dave, now all of my insecurities will ooze out each time I point the camera at something--wondering what THEY are thinking of ME!! Thanks a lot, just what I need to make my day :rolleyes: . Just kidding, of course. Glad you had time to look. Cyclops--well, I certainly have been called a lot worse :biggrin: !

    O.K. Gale. I will back off of Morticia for awhile. Will be away for several days and when I check back hopefully you will have a fine name for a fine lady. :smile: .
