This is real animal. Don't believe me? Its a Ultra macro shot of early morning dew on a dragonfly. The dew droplets magnify the myriad of facets on the eyes ... which gives the dragonfly superior vision in the animal world. Tip from Van Ness Water Gardens

A case of mistaken identity... When I saw this guy hanging out under a streetlamp, I thought it was a Vinegaroon (whip scorpion - Order Thelyphonida, formerly of order Uropygi, which means tail rump) and snapped a quick photo. When I looked more closely at it at home, I realized that it is actually a  Tailless Whipscorpion (Order Amblypygi, which means blunt rump - hilarious). Either way, a spooky looking but totally harmless arachnid.
