Indoor Autumn Nature in New Jersey

Be not afraid. These guys eat other insects and spiders. They are very fast, and are not normally out during the day.

My house pet. I haven’t seen one of these for a long time. This one got caught in my bathtub and couldn’t get out. I’m told they eat other insects and spiders. After taking the picture, I let it go outside. Now that is starting to warm up outside, I am seeing a number of ants scouting the house for food. After my renovation and spring cleaning they are not finding much.

Indoor Autumn Nature in New Jersey: House Pet Returns

Scutigera Coleoptrata (House Centipede) — Not a Silverfish, one of my creepy crawly house pets appeared again this afternoon. Still waiting on the Drobo upgrade to complete, so spent some time taking macro images — until it got tired of the flash and went away.

Indoor Summertime Nature in New Jersey.

My New Pet?? If I don’t have anything better to shoot for my “image of the day” I can always find one of the house centipedes to pose. I just wish that they were outside and going after what ever is nibbling on my tomato plants.
