Notes and Photos -
Mostly from Rural Ontario -
Occasionally from Travels Beyond
The critters are all so cute!I must get my recently turned 7 year old son to come and identify the spider for me. He was very helpful out in the yard today. We all cleaned up as a family and he was in his glory, identifying all the bugs and creepy crawlies for us. He reads any book that he can get his hands on, that has to do with bugs or mammals.I will let him see all of your wonderful photos. He will really enjoy himself!
The spider is called.. a Golden rod crab spider...or as I call it a yellow crab spider. Beautiful photos.
Wonderful - I keep looking and looking some more - wonderful detail!It is always fun to come and see what you have found in your wanderings.
Perfect bugs - perfect PERFECT bugs and those leaves are perfect too. On the weekend, I chased our first dragonflies across the hill for an hour, but (alas) they did not alight anywhere long enough for me to take a picture.
Beautiful pictures!!Amazing really.I am sure I'll be a regular visitor to your blog now. I am a regular visitor of Jimmy's blog and found yours through his. Both of you have such excellent photography skills.
Your photos present such wonderful detail - an opportunity to see how fabulously constructed and beautifully coloured these little creatures are and where they like to hang out. I love coming here.
Thanks Jimmy, for clarifying. My son was right. Not bad for seven years old, eh??Now, he is convinced those spiders are poisonous. I am sure they are not and we have not read anywhere that they are. I think he is hopeful. Being a young lad, that sounds neato, doesn't it???
Is that first one a lacewing? Love the damselflies too. :)
