@shadowy-seas submitted: Some wonderful spiders
And story time about the bottom one
I was at work when I found her and when I walked up to take a closer look see hopped a little to face me ((floor is slick)) and raised her front legs. I figured I had startled her and left her alone to wonder around while I was finishing up my task. At one point she crawled right in front of me and stopped, so I caught her and let her go.
They are very wonderful! Looks like a brown widow and some kinda wolfie babe. They will definitely raise their front legs in defense to try to look big and scary to a predator. It worked in this case since you left them alone :P Thanks for sharing!
@mrultra100 submitted: Found this little guy when I was up at my mom’s cabin in Tennessee. It looked like some sort of spider
Oh! A very leggy friend. Nice of them to help with the fishing line. Looks like a long-jawed orbweaver in the genus Tetragnatha, maybe an elongate stilt spider :)
@caterpillar-titty submitted: The first one was found near Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. The spider was found in rapid city, South Dakota. If you could ID, I’d be super happy! Thank you!
The first dude is a western conifer seed bug, which is a type of leaf-footed bug. The second is kinda blurry so I can’t say much except that it looks like some kinda crab spider!
Long horned orb weaver spider.
A yellow garden spider (Argiope aurantia), sitting in the center of the zigzag stabilimentum of its distinctive web.
@dsgustng submitted: These big spiders are all over the grocery store I work at, Location is Foley Minnesota
A beautiful orbweaver! This one is a furrow spider in the genus
Larinioides, but I can’t say which…could be a furrow orbweaver, L. cornutus, or a grey cross spider, L.
sclopetarius, or even an ornamental orbweaver, L. patagiatus, though that’s the least common in your area. Either way she is perfect and I love her.
@brdrlnds submitted: this lovely lady was found in new jersey! soon to be mother by the looks of things :) she’s a black and yellow garden spider, right? absolutely beautiful is all i know!
Oh!!! A mother-to-be :))) I hope she has one million tiny precious babies and they all survive to adulthood. She is indeed a yellow garden spider although her abdomen is strangely shaped compared to what I normally see. I suppose it must be rather deflated after she laid all those eggs. Thanks for sharing her!
@artofthephan submitted: this is the 1st green lynx spider i’ve seen in person, they are amazing! like a kiwi and a dragon fruit had a weird spikey baby 🕷
Look at those leg hairs!! Fantastic. Looks like a female unless there are big pedipalps I can’t see. Love this kiwi babe…hope she’s having a great day.
@there-is-a-hole-in-your-mind submitted: Just some pictures of some of the bugs I’ve seen that I thought you would like. All pictures were taken in Southeastern Wisconsin.
I do like them! Nay...love them. Especially that big fat spider. What a precious babe. Hope all these friends are having great bug days
Bugs i saw at my house + some kinda blister beetle i think at the store
