    Ha, ha,ha. . . .No wonder you got Lymes! We have a lot of it here in PA. It ain't no joke. At least in MD you won't get Rocky Mountain Fever.
    Maybe a fuzzy pussy willow bud?

    good golly gee, looks like a potato with arms and legs. kind of resembles a fingerprint as well, with the grooves on it's back/skin. I thank you and the brown recluse poster in advance for my new found phobia concerning small insects

    They have always freaked me out, and that's even before my Doc determined a long time malady was Lymes Disease. It took a 30 day course of antibiotics to take it down a notch. I'm sure it's arthritis, too, but things have never been the same since that experience.

    Great camera, tho. How about some non-predatory insects?
  7. Actually, it's "Lyme Disease" (no "s"), named after the town of Lyme, Connecticut. My brother-in-law had extreme fatigue from it for 12 years before finally being diagnosed—and he's a VP with a world-wide corporation that sent him to clinics all over the country trying to figure out what was causing his problem. The info sheets say that leaving it untreated that long can have some pretty dire permanent effects, too.

    PS: Great photo of the little bugger!
