Not your usual post from me today on pretty flowers or crafty, foody, book stuff.
I was very glad that I had my gloves on while gardening yesterday. Clearing out some dead leave I came across this Weta. I don't see these very often in the garden, thank goodness. They are mainly herbivore but they will some times bite and can scratch with their spiny legs. This one was about the size of my little finger, and I think it is a Tree Weta. After a few photos and unsuccessful attempts to move it to a safer place, I left it alone.
Have a fabulous weekend!
