Bug On A Leaf—I’m Glad I’m Not A Bug

Here is a picture I took a few weeks ago here in Houston of a bug on a leaf.

I have no idea what type of bug or what type of leaf is shown in this picture.

While I’m certain insects are essential to the Earth’s ecosystem, I’m glad I’m not a bug.

Bugs don’t live very long and they do not have blogs.

Here is a link to Entomology section of the Smithsonian.

Here is a field guide to insects of Texas from Texas A & M. 

Here are facts about leaves.

Do Trees Change Color In Houston?

Do trees in Houston ever change color?

As you see from this I picture I recently took in Houston, the answer is yes.

The caveat, however, is that, as you see above, the only trees that change color in Houston are those located in shopping strip center parking lots.

Here are facts about trees most likely to change color in Houston.
