Photo captured at 7:34 pm.
Note the top of the white house-like marking on the abdomen described at http://cisr.ucr.edu/european_spider.html
The only moth of the evening.
Larinioides patagiatus or L. sericatus. Has the white-margined carapace described in Adams (2014), but so does http://bugguide.net/node/view/1002037. Looser, more open web than Zygiella, fewer sticky bits.
By far the most abundant araneid. A European species noted for its preference for houses. Abdomenal markings and dark head seem fairly distinctive to me, though Z. atrica is supposed to be an identical species that doesn't like structures and is present in the Pac NW.
Small, cryptic grasshopper on the edge of the lake.
Landing, with an American White Pelican nearby
Some sort of orb-weaver I found at the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center.
Difficult to catch in mid-flight, but still identifiable...I hope
