Here are my photos for this week.

I found this Praying Mantis at the bottom of a brick wall and it was putting something in its mouth. I couldn't see what it was so I am assuming it was a fly. I leaned over and started taking photos. This is the first time I have seen a praying mantis with prey so I was pretty excited.

It was quickly climbing up the wall so I was only able to get a couple of photos.

Finger licking good.

All photos are my own.

This pretty butterfly Gif is brought to you by @brisby. Thank you!

Proof of transfer.

Thanks @gertu you know I didn't even see that I was one of the week 51 winners lol

I think. is that so many changes are happening that we feel strange. I didn't even remember that it was Thursday, until night came. So I said to myself it's Thursday of three contests, I'm going to check. Jajajaja. crazy

Hi @truelovemom! Nice to see you here and thanks for your entry. : )

Hi @dulce160! Nice to see you and thanks for your entry. : )

Hi @wendyth16! Thanks for your entry. : )

Hi :) very cool mantis action.
And while I'm here - here is my entry. A little trip through the woods in my area.

Thanks @borjan! The photos are blurry because it was walking up the wall so fast. Thanks for your entry. : )

Why not say to use the hive+number as the first tag to post? With a slow connection like mine it is impossible to start a site and wait and write and load photos and try again and again and try to save....

I wish you a great day. No bugs alive at the moment. 💕

It doesn't work with the hive- tag, it will not post to that community. You have to post from the hive/community page to get it into the specific community, then resteem your own post to send it out to your followers.

Why? I use several hives as first tag and it works. Did they change something lately or it always been this way? I guess for the next days nothing will work if it comes to the hives. 💕

Hi Kitty! When the communities went live, me and others could no longer post using the hive number. I do not use apps either. If you know of a way to post in a community by using the hive number first, please let me know so that I can tell others. Thanks! No bugs here either but hopefully it will warm up soon for both of us. You have a great day too! : )

Do or did you post with There's somewhere an.option you can choose posting in your blog or in a hive. I have posting in a blog. If you chose that option it's posdible to type hive-x as first tag, same eith every dapp you use. Only Steempeak has an option to choose/scroll through your list of communities and pick the one you need.
With partiko it always works. I guess we need to wait now how everything works out for a week or so if it comes to the communities. I hope it will be easier and the resteeming is a problem too. 💕

You can also use Steempeak they have the community function there as well.
Also if you subscribe to the community it will show up on your blog page.

I know you can use Steempeak but it's a site which I can hardly load plus if you didn't choose "posting in your blog" I believe everything you post is posted into the same community. I made that mistake several times and what is annoying is you cannot undo it. Well, after the weekend coming up/next week nothing will be the same and Steempeak will not only change it's name.

I post with in the community which shows up in my posts. If I resteem from the community it will show up in my blog also. dapps drive me crazy because I don't use them and know nothing about them. Just use whatever works best for you.

In I have set: posting in my blogs!
Each post is posted in my blogs unless I type the hive plus number as a first tag. In that case, it only shows up in my posts and the community and I need to resteem my post to be seen by everyone. But to be honest I resteem each post because I am not sure if it works good enough.

The option where to post I could only choose if I sign out first and next sign in.

Cool, looks like it's pregnant ...

Here is a very pregnant one.

Hello @whatisnew and Happy Spring !!! Yesterday was the Vernal Equinox and the earliest spring in 124 years. We just went through a series of winter storms with sleet and hail so the insect population is a bit sparse on this warm sunny spring day.
No insects yet but I'm sitting on the deck with my camera so maybe =)
Also any thoughts on Hive ?
Be well my friend !!

Happy Spring to you too Bud! I did hear that this was the earliest spring in 124 years. A lot of changes are among all of us right now. I hope the insects know that you are waiting for them on your deck. LOL!
About head is spinning. I love the idea but for me personally I just have too much going on in my life right now and wouldn't even try to attempt making another change. How about you?
You stay put until the virus is gone and stay away from that stool!!!

LOL I'll try to stay off the stool but.... <,<
I'm going to do both Steem and Hive but I will do most of my posting from Hive. Your going to get a mirror of hive that is in your existing Steem account and all you need to do is log into Hive with your Steem ID and claim the account. Hive goes live tomorrow.
Also Justin is censoring(Steemit front end) post critical of him and any promoting the hive chain using a Chinese blacklisting service for it to boot. Posts censored on the Steemit front end only since he can't do it to the Steem blockchain, suggest you use an alternate front end like Steampeak to see all the posts. It's easy go here
and log in just like you do on Steemit, it's better in more than a few ways. I used both untill I learned the ins and outs of Steempeak now I mostly use it.

Thanks so much for the info Bud! I have some questions:
1-Do I have to download anything to use Steempeak?
2-Can I still have my butterfly and insect giveaway on Hive?
3-What happens to SBI?
4-If I post on Steempeak, will it show up on Steemit?

  1. No, you log in just like Steemit.
  2. Yes Hive will be a new blockchain though and things posted on the hive chain will not show on the Steem chain. Just a note Steempeak doesn't operate on the hive chain.
  3. Unknown if SBI will move to hive,but there is an easy wallet function for SBI on Steempeak
  4. Yes Steempeak operates on the Steem blockchain just like Steemit
    Again Steempeak operates on the Steem Chain not Hive, anything posted there will show up on Steemit unless you get on Justins blacklist and they censor your posts(he is doing that now)
    The hive goes live Friday and you can go to to access the chain and log in to your account with your Steem ID the first time and the get your account and keys for hive.
    I do most of my posts from Steempeak these days I like the interface there.
    Just go over and log in and check it out and check out the wallet there you will love it

I was able to log into Hive but not able to get into my wallet.
I am confused about Steempeak. You said that Steempeak doesn't operate on the hive chain, but you use it to post there?
Can I just post from Hive like I do here?

No I use Steampeak instead of Steemit to post and interact with the Steem Blockchain .
To log into Hive go to this link and log in with your Steem ID PEAKD is Steempeak's front end to the Hive Blockchain. Steem and Hive do not interact together, the are now separate chains. Posts to Steem will not show on Hive and vise versa

Here is a screen shot of your Hive wallet.

I'm sorry to intrude, but how do you get into your account on peakd? I can't see my wallet on hive.

Thanks for your help Bud! I should be on Hive now. I went to Peakd and signed in but I didn't have to set a Pin number to get to my wallet. Did I do something wrong?

Nice close-up photos of this insect!

When I was a child, I was afraid of this insect very much because the older people told me that there was a small snake in this insect... Besides, its strange shape can frighten me whenever I faced it. It's fortunate that I don't find any of them around my area nowadays. ;)

Thanks @tangmo! I would be very afraid of the praying mantis also if I was told there was a small snake in it. OMG! I wonder why you were told that? It does look like an alien though and they always watch your every move. Pretty freaky. LOL!

You're welcome!

Ah! Right word! It looks like "an alien" indeed. "They always watch us every move", this may be another reason why I was afraid of them. It would be better for me to stay away from them! ;D

p.s. I have started my first post in Hive now. Just in case, you are interested in visiting my blog there, ;) (you can log in by your Steem password for posting.)

Yay! I am so happy that you are on Hive now. I just joined so I will see you there. : )

Yeah! I'm very happy that you joined Hive, too. See you there! ;)
