My friends Leora and Ilana-Davita are avid photographers and often contribute to photo blogs. I'd like to get into this area of blogging, but have to set some limits. Still, I couldn't resist posting the picture of this critter, captured by Mazi on our recent trip up North:
Nasty looking, I know, but it still is one of G-d's creatures. Mazi captured the little guy (gal?) scurrying along on the tayelet (boardwalk) of the city of Nahariya. In Israel, these critters are called "Jukim". Growing up in Brooklyn, New York City, we'd see 'em every now and then, and they absolutely terrified me. We called them "Water Bugs", but to me they are Giant Cockroaches. Blech. So check out the weekly posting of this and more cuddly creatures at Camera-Critters.
And while we're at it, Haveil Havalim is up at Little Frumhouse on the Prairie. Go check it out...
