A quick note about permissions. I am more than happy for people to use my photos in presentations, educational materials, and websites, but please acknowledge me if you do. All images posted on websites should include a link to this blog. I spend a lot of time and effort photographing these insects, so please be kind and let people know where you got your images. If you wish to use them in print materials, please leave a comment below (you will be asked to enter your e mail address, which only I will be able to see) and I will contact you by e mail regarding permission. I keep the images I post here small and relatively low resolution to save space, but I can provide higher resolution, larger photos for print if desired.

I’m trying to find out what kind of spider is in the 15th picture down marked spider on web
You’re in luck! I actually know what that one is. It’s a type of orb weaver, Neoscona crucifera. That image features a female, but the photo right under it (a large spider up against a red background) is the male. Beautiful, huge spiders!
How many species of non insect arthropods are there in the world.
You know, I don’t know! Sorry, can’t help you with that one.
