I have a lot of bugs at my house this time of year. Since my house is not well sealed, many of them are inside the house. This beetle is the second one of the same type that I've re-located outside tonight.

These beetles make a sort of hissing noise when they're upset. The first one was hiding behind some dishes in the kitchen sink. I found it because the sink started hissing at me when I turned the water on, which was a little odd.

I just looked up hissing beetles, and this appears to be a Ten-lined June Beetle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten-lined_June_beetle

I'm trying to refill the hummingbird feeders, but the bees don't want to leave.

Some deer were eating bird seed out of my bird feeder this morning. The bird feeder is about 5 feet off the ground, and only 3 feet from my window. That didn't seem to concern the deer at all.

Lots of hummingbirds at my house now. I've seen as many as 6 at once, and they're going through about 4 cups of sugar water per day.

Putting up ceiling insulation. Doesn't look as nice as the existing ceiling, but going from no insulation to three inches of foam board should be worth it.
