Garden Fauna

I was picking some chards and found this little guy.  My best guess is that it's a Johnson Jumper or a California Jumper (thanks to Spiders on the Web)

Nu kittiz

M's been trying to get some kittens for work, so the second graders have another fuzzy farm animal to play with.  For a while, it seemed all the farmers in Yolo cty had gotten rid of their feral cat colonies simultaneously, because there was not a kitten to be found.  At last, though, someone dropped a pair off at the local feed store who called up M. They are white with just a touch of gray fur on top of each of their heads, but they're too darn fast to catch on camera.  Ah well, here's my best shots.
