OK, photo number one is for the See It Sunday theme--cool. This is an example of my "drive by shooting" series, i.e. taken from the car while stopped at a stop light.
Photo number 2 comes with a request. Does anyone know what kind of a spider this is? I've never seen one with a body like this. First I thought it was a seed (the end looks like one). It also reminds me a bit of a hermit crab with all the colored legs clustered at one end. Snail--don't let me down.
