crab spider eating a bug
One bug feeding on the plant, another feeding a crab spider.
Going about business on a windy day.
Flitting about in a very non-photogenic way
Working the stash tree.
Virginia opposum roadkill on F Street at North Davis Ponds, Davis, Ca.
Northern Flicker Red-shafted group
Windy day by the creek.
Berries turning red. Stiff green leaves. Growing in a Stormwater Detention Basin/Wildlife Habitat area. Toyon has been planted in the area, but I think this one is a volunteer.
Silverfish in a public bathroom. Sometimes, insects are more important than bowel movements.
A devilishly handsome jumping spider that hitched a ride on my bicycle.
Nymphs of some hemipteran, maybe pentatomidae or coreidae. Lots of these were walking up this wall for days.
Two juvenile mantids that had recently emerged from their ootheca; their siblings appear to have gone elsewhere.
Shield bug. Notice in the second picture that its proboscis is poking my skin and secreting a clear fluid, probably saliva. I do not know why it did this.
I found it on my patio screen. I see them most autumns in my yard in Davis, CA. Mostly light brown with a white stripe across the back. The rear tibia was wider than the rest of the leg.
I apologize for the poor cell phone photo.
