Unusual day for a white grub

Today I was greeted by white grub making his way across my driveway.

How unusual it is to see a grub in the middle of the day making his way across a driveway. Grubs live underground and feed on the roots of grass, weeds, ornamentals and a few other kinds of plants. 

The White Grub is the larvae of the “June Beetle”. There are over a hundred different kinds if  “June Beetles”. 

When there is a heavy infestation of grubs you will find it certainly will attract raccoons, skunks, armadillos, opossums, crows, ibis, and other birds, which make holes in the lawn and garden to feed on the grubs.

This is the largest grub I have ever seen. This guy measured almost 5 inches in length. I am surprised he wasn’t lunch for one of the many birds that hang out around our house.

About Nature's Magical Photography by Jaxs Powell

Welcome to my world of Nature's Magical Photography. I started as a kid with a camera I had gotten for my birthday. Nothing expensive just a Kodak Instamatic. Loving the outdoors I found myself loving and exploring the world around me. Through the years a simple camera connected me to earth and all the beauty that is here. It taught me to love everything around me and even myself. The journey to true happiness is learning to love yourself. Nature is truly magical and can certainly connect you to the magic and wonderment of miracles. It can remove the stress in your life and bring peace to your inner self. I have a unique way of seeing the world around me and hope to share my journey with you. Love and Light to all
