It’s winter, and I now live in a place where it actually gets rather cold at night. That unfortunately means that I don’t have my usual access to mid-winter insects and I can no longer make you all jealous that we still have bugs out and about. But, I do have a nice stockpile of shots I took at BugShot 2012 that I haven’t shared yet! While I anxiously await spring and the return of pretty flowers and insects to photograph, I bring you bugs and other arthropods from Florida!
Every time I look through my BugShot photos, I see new creatures I didn’t realize I’d photographed. For example, I took this photo thinking I was photographing a group of flowers. Somehow, I completely missed the giant yellow crab spider:
It was dark out, but wow! For such a big spider, it sure did blend in well!
