I didn’t choose the bug life… [images]

I’m happy to report that the insects are out in full in J.T.-vale. I spent Saturday afternoon scouring the fields for them, and caught quite a few!

No insects were harmed in the making of this image compilation.

Mother wolf spider with egg sac. She was 2 inches long (including legs). It’s unusual for this species’s egg sac to be blue. O, the mysteries of nature…

I had to sneak up on this fuzzy gray spider to take a picture. She was racing across the forest floor like she had somewhere to be!
