When I stopped by Tualatin Hills Nature Park the other day to get a new map, Supervisor Michael was showing a few of the Bug Fest participants.
Like this stick insect.
But the bugs aren't just in the Interpretive Center. They are easy to find outside. Like millipedes on the trails.
You can find really large dragonflies at the Big Pond.
But the other day there were more slugs than anything. Big slugs like this banana slug.
Plain brown ones.
Along with the colorful spotted banana slugs. How big was this one?
Longer than my cell phone. So it pays to watch where you are stepping when walking because I would not want one of these on my shoes.
