Wild Boar ey!

Hello folks! I was wondering about which skull I should write today and my choice fell on a wild boar skull, a young specimen. I don't know if you have special names for young boars, but in the German language we call baby wild boars "freshlings" and teenager boars are "renegades" xD. Last name is used until the young boar is about two years old and ready to leave the pack (is a group of wild boars called a pack in English?). Well, at least the young males will leave, the females will stay by their mother. Read more under the cut!

I like 'em big...

... I like 'em chunky!
Yes! I really like big things and that also counts for big insects (as long as they don't suck my blood and stuff). I had the pleasure to meet one big exemplar at the beach and that encounter is the reason why I write down the story about my "big bug"-exhibits I found lately. But let's see more under the cut!

Pictures of the Day

These two stinks are eating my mint plant! Actually I wanted to harvest the mint and saw a tiny little caterpillar. Meanwhile it is quite big, amazing how fast it grow. My mint must be very nutritious ;)

The "bigger photo post" I promised...

Coming soon, she said. Big photo post, she said. Ok, I'm sorry that I always need so much time for such simple things. But editing photos needs a lot of time and I'm always very busy and sometimes even lethargic with a bad mood. But hey, here we are! See a lot of photos under the cut!

Sight of the Day

My first thought was great white heron, but it was too small and had yellow feet. Well, it's a little egret! Maybe it's on the way to its breeding ground, because we don't have these birds here in the area. Cool sight!
