Day 122 of 365

Found this Weta living in the watering can tucked away behind a tree. They are nocturnal so he was a bit confused about being photographed. I put him back in the tree and he scuttled away.
(I had a nightmare about a Weta once when I was a kid...actually the dream was about a Christmas decoration
that I thought was on my pillow but when I woke up, a Weta was there instead!)
See you tomorrow,
