Like the gnat in a previous Observation, this wee spider also likes reading about fractals. Who would have guessed that tiny arthropods are so fascinated by the details of complex structures?

This mosquito tried to bite me through my pants, but I could lift up the sheet of my pants around where it stood, leaving a big space between its mouthparts and my leg. It would try to poke around, but to no avail. It was hilarious.

This dragonfly was sitting on a wall, lethargic presumably because it was early morning, and the night's cold had not worn off yet; so I was able to nudge it onto my thumb. I stared at it and played with it for a while, including trying unsuccessfully to feed it an aphid. At some point it started vibrating its wings, perhaps to warm itself up, and after ~20 minutes of that it flew off.

This individual is my profile picture as of 7 June 2014.
