That's definitely a hawk or falcon.  Without seeing its wingspan it's hard to tell which.  I'm leaning toward a hawk, but again, it's hard to tell.  Still a nice pic!

@GabeU

Every year, around the late August and September months, we have thousands of tarantula's coming through our yard...it's their yearly migration..the males are seeking out female companionship. Horny little buggers, hahaha...

 

We don't see too many Ladybugs over this way...

We usually get a rash of ladybugs Aug-Dec during an Indian Summer when it hits around 70. Never this late... early?

EEK!!!!   You can keep your tarantulas.  What I get are just wolf spiders, and though somewhat large to me, they're nothing compared to those hairy buggers you get!  Smiley Tongue

We have quite a problem with these around here.  They make nests in your home and if you don't catch them right away they get out of hand.  These are Japanese lady bugs, too, which are an invasive species.  I hate them. 

 

Oh, and they apparently woke up during that stretch of warmer weather we had a few weeks ago.  Did I say I hate them?  If not, I hate them.  Smiley Tongue

Ladybugs don't bother me.

Stinkbugs bother me. They're creepy. sneaky, and attack at any moment.

Re: It's not a great picture, but...

I get stinkbugs once in a while, too.  Usually I just pick them up and throw them out the window or door.  

 

Those darn lady bugs, though.  I'll be sitting there and all of a sudden my arm will start stinging, only to look down and see one of those buggers biting me.  It's more annoying than painful, but annoying enough.  It's only happened three or four times over the years, but it was enough for me to develop a deep seated hatred for them.  And once a year they swarm.  If I dare to venture outside on the day they do so my house will be covered with hundreds upon hundreds, if not thousands, and it's impossible to walk ten feet without having a dozen of them on you.  

 

They give the good, cute ladybugs a bad name.

Wow, that's a great spider, @GabeU.  C0rr0sive should adopt it.
