Survival, the Hopper Whisperer! Very nice!

I doubt Mighty Hiker checks this, or any, thread any more but this one's for you, Mighty!


From the Life Is Strange Dept; waiting for the termite man I saw this
little guy/gal on my front window...
And just how does one palm vertical glass?

Claud, that prolly happened in Aussieland where anything that bites you will
prolly kill you. A buddy of mine was visiting friends there and woke up in
his guest bedroom watching this spider spin this cool web in the corner near
his bed. He goes out for breakfast and starts telling them about it and
they all immediately ask,

"Is the web funnel shaped?"

A big stampede for the RAID ensued.



Found this little cutie while working on my deck.
He's all of an inch long but he was most uncooperative - all he wanted
to do was haul balls for some place dark.

"You don't have to be big to be successful."

Collective wisdom of Pratt, Chouinard, and Harding on Watsonkins and El Cap, for sure.

Don't know anything about insects, but this boy was hard at work in the yard of a house I'm working on. That's a Bee he's wrapping up, so you can get a sense of his size, he's a beefy fellow.

Think you had a rough day?

The weird thing is that after patiently posing for a dozen pics I was
thinking about putting him out of his misery. No sooner than the thoughts
coalesced he emphatically took off!



ps
Rudder's spider looks a Garden Spider but that's not definitive.

Rudder et al, those are cat-face spiders. Either Araneus gemma or gemmoides. Fun to have around in the garden for sure.
