Snakes Skin

So for the first time I have found snake skin in my backyard. I was getting the tomato cages out of our shed when it caught my eye. I actually thought it was the snake itself at first and was a bit frightened due to its size. I then went back to give it another look and take a picture. Very cool, now to find the snake…

Deadly, Mantis Shrimp

This shrimp packs a punch. I was introduced to this creature by one of my good friends, she had seen one of them at a pet store.  Its color, vision and strength sets this creature apart form other sea dwellers. Here’s a fun, informational clip on this creature.

Label design

Yesterday I decided to make a few labels for a few of the beers for our upcoming BBQ & Beer Festival in a few weeks. It was fun coming up with various themes to fit the various flavors.

Bird Nests

In light of Mother’s day  I thought I would continue with my bird theme and share  some unique nesting habits of various birds. They range from well-weaved enclosures, ground nests, cliffs, and various other cavities. Enjoy!
