I was walking through a field and my eyes snapped to this fingernail-sized wolf spider on a clover. Talk about spider senses tingling!

caterpillars
Thanks for eating my tree, guys. I really appreciate it.

 

caterpillar
I wasn’t able to identify this caterpillar online. The closest match was a caterpillar native to Australia.

 

bumblebee
A bumblebee on a flower. There are over 250 known species of bumblebee, so I’m not going to bother with exact identification. But did you know that unlike honeybees, female bumblebees can sting repeatedly?

A daddy longlegs on the same flowering bush, right below the bumblebee.

 

moth
A moth with tattered wings or a weird new species? You decide!
