Twelve Days of Christmas 2012

Since tomorrow is the twelfth day of Christmas, I thought I'd give you your belated gifts. Of course they're all part of L.A.'s surprising biodiversity, yes even those turtle wasps!

Twelve weevils wandering
 

Eleven pepsis wasps piping

 

 

Ten spiders-a-leaping

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nine ground squirrels dancing

 

 

Eight ants-a-milking (though technically they should be milking aphids)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seven spittlebugs-a-spitting
 

 

Six roaches-a-laying (down that is)
 

 

Five under wings
 

 

Four warbling birds
 

 

Three French (phorid) flies
 

 

Two turtle wasps
 

 

And a hawk in a pear infested pond
 

Wishing you a happy New Year...what urban nature will we find this year?
