Angry Bug

Posted by

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
I've heard of angry birds, but this appeared to be an angry bug that showed up on my desk. (Yes, I took it outside and released it.)

**We made it home from Seattle Sunday night, after canceled flights from storms here at home, so now I have lots of photos to edit and post. Thanks to Steve Rice and Denny Jump for good travel advice about their beautiful area of the Northwest US.
