A German yellowjacket was hibernating on the ceiling of my mother’s shed. After knocking it down, I let it crawl onto a leaf and then a stump to photograph it.
After a cold week, I only found a few midges outside to photograph yesterday. That reminded me of this tiny, white midge I had photographed in October. It was barely noticeable, peeking into our nice, warm house, but a macro lens revealed its true midge identity.
It was 35 degrees Fahrenheit after sunset last night, but it wasn’t too cold for a crab spider (Thomisidae) to be out and about. You might say it was a cool crab spider.
The temperature was fairly warm this weekend, so yesterday afternoon I went outside to see if there were any bugs still hanging around the yard to photograph. And of course there were still bugs around, because there are always bugs around.
