More critters from the backyard putting green. Anyone know what this spider is? He's pretty big and menacing looking. I've been feeding him crickets and grasshoppers that I find in the yard.



I have seen a lot of mantids in the yard this summer.

I have a pond—more of a large puddle right now. One of my practice throws went down by waters edge. Near dusk when I went to retrieve it. As I’m about to bend over and grab my disk a 12” (baby) garter snake runs across the top of the disc.

I know he’s completely harmless, but that’s still a “whoa” moment. Adrenaline spiked. Heart races.

I have all kinds of snakes in the area. Rattlers being the primary concern. Seen one copperhead over the years. Zero moccasins, but never say never.

Looks like a common garden spider. They are gross (I'm not a spider fan), but harmless.

I see a snake about once every three or four trips to my course in Alvin. Usually some type of rat or grass snake.

I'm still cautious when picking up my frisbee from the thick brush under the trees... we really need a work day out at Briscoe DGC.

Rabbits are all over the course in the evenings. A few squirrels here and there.

You need to train them to retrieve discs. Another revenue source for the course!

I think it's some kind of bug.
