a photo of a common house fly so this year, in order to honor the equal time for opposing parties rule, I am posting a photo of a spider. This particular spider built and maintains his web just outside my door so I see him every day. My spider identification skills are rudimentary at best but it appears this is a member of the Orb Weaver family. However since there are over 3,000 species in this family I will not attempt a more specific identification. Whenever I focus in on insects I am amazed at how hairy they are!

|During the recent Victoria International Buskers Festival I was pleased to see that the organizers included some of our local buskers in the program. Anyone who looks at this blog regularly will know that I have a special fondness for our local street performers who are out there sharing their art with us for many months each year and enlivening our streets with their talents. Pictured today is one such, Pierre St. Pierre, who never fails to mesmerize children with his clockwork mime and nostalgic French cafe music.|
