Giant Water Bug

Our Giant Water Bug
Imagine my surprise on Sunday, when I was cleaning leaves out of the pool... and this one started to swim. It's a giant water bug, and it's a freaky SOB. A google image search will pull up some nasty pics of them. Here's a nice heart warming story about Sam and her pet Giant Water Bug -- our bug enjoyed a much less warm welcome to the family and was sent packing down the storm drain. Apparently they bite - and leave a nasty sting.
