WHAT THE HECK



I was working in the garden and about to put my camera down on the fence when I saw this.  It's amazing how fast your mind processes things and runs through the list of possible outcomes.  Scorpion?  Giant spider?  Something from the next SyFY channel movie?


Nah, it's the shell of a crawfish, or depending on where you are from, crayfish, mudbug or crawdad. My guess is a bird snatched one up from a puddle somewhere and sat here to dine on it.  You'd think they could clean up after they're done!  It would certainly be better for my heart rate the next time.

I LOVE crawfish! And that's a biggie. My step son and his family came through on the way back Loisianna and brought some crawfish. We sat outside for hours eating them all. SO good!

LOL! You just don't expect to see a crawdad sitting in a fence ;)

1st Man,

You don't expect to see a partial crawdad sitting on your fence next to the gate.
Those birds they get into everything, and never clean up their messes, lol

That is too funny. We don't see those kind of things around here. What I see is dog food in my bird bath water.

I would have approached that carefully with camera in hand.

LOL, that's a great way of thinking about it huh? ;)

I did say anything out loud but inside I might have said a few choice words, ha.

We do enjoy them as well. They are very good and you're right, I didn't think about it but that's a bit one huh?

1st Man said...

THAT'S for sure. If the thing had moved I might have hurt myself. ha.

1st Man said...

Ha, they DO make a mess and just fly away huh? Yep, not something you see every day.

1st Man said...

Ha, dog food? I guess they get it and bring it to the bath so they can dine and bathe? LOL!

1st Man said...

Crayfish huh? So it's a crayfish boil? Or do people think they are gross up those parts? Ha.

I may, or may not, have dropped my camera. LOL!
