Nearly stepped on this little guy in the garage last night. The rain was pretty intense and I think he was drying out a little, taking a break from the deluge. He was trucking along pretty slowly. I warmed him up in my hand for a while--& he checked out the sights. When I put him back he just ambled on his merry way.
Looks a lot like the little salamander I found in the garden last summer. I wonder how long these guys live? I'm sure it's not the same one. But it's for sure the same type. I haven't seen any of these salamanders for months & was beginning to think the toad had scared them off--but yay! Here one is again.
Okay. So I just finished watching this movie. And I'm not going to go into it deeply, but I will say this. What the fuck is wrong with the ship's computer?!
The garden's on fire--in a spaceship--and the computer doesn't seem to have an 'alert' system to tell the crew critical information like, you know, your spaceship's on fire! In space!
Or that the airlock's been damaged, or that someone is attempting to de-couple the docking system. Or that there's an unknown 5th person on board--using up vital oxygen. All kind of important things I'd imagine that the crew should know, but that the computer only seems able to tell them when asked directly, or if it happens to come up in conversation. Along the lines of "Why are you manually changing our direction?" "Oh, because your ship's on fire." That sort of BS.
There may be any manner of things wrong with the movie, like the fact that it degenerates into a bizarre slasher flick at the end (and why do brilliant professional astronauts who have presumably trained and been psychoanalyzed for years ALWAYS go insane in space? Someone always nuts up and goes on a killing spree. Always. And it also happens underwater. See: The Abyss). But the thing that really pissed me off was the damn useless notification system from the computer. And the slasher part. Come ON.
Another pretty little cicada lure from Smith, Haruzemi female:
On my other Smith cicada lures, the wings have a delicate pattern applied to them. But this cicada, like Smith's 'bee,' has clear wings. Gorgeous metallic fiery red on the top, and a brilliant golden belly. Petite, delicate and real looker.
Probably my all time favorite cicada lure, even though I'm not supposed to have favorites: Daiwa "Drown Cicada." This guy is extremely awesome. I love the hole vents in wings, the sturdy frame, the opaque eyes--the crazy multicam wing pattern. This cicada has it all. I would LOVE to get my hands on another, different version, but in the US cicada lures are so hard to find. I need a hook up!
It's just hands down my favorite cicada lure. It's solid, stealthy, beautiful and incredibly well designed. A+
