Things with legs

Post about other stuff to follow. Maybe.

For now, enjoy some photos of things with legs. You probably shouldn't look if you're arachnophobic or something. Also TONS of photos, slow connections beware.


Click on any to see full-sized HUGE picture.


Wood frog (rana sylvatica), found in my yard.


Tiny little treefrog, not sure what species. Found in garden, yay!


Dragonfly in the BWCA; I'll have to ask my ma again what species it is.


Damn, why did this turn out so blurry? No larger image. Fishing spider (dolomedes), one of many I encountered in the BWCA.


FACE


Fishing spiders aren't small; they're the largest spiders native to Minnesota.


Some funky caterpillar; no clue what it is. I didn't touch it.



A cicada I found in the yard yesterday. No idea what species. To Bugguide.net I go!

We enjoy tro-posts. Also, fishing spiders are MUCH larger than I'd of suspected.
Oh fishing spider, ILU. Trade you some captive-bred redback jumpers for one. :D
WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY HOMIES 4 LIFE MAN! You cannot escape!

omgomgomg I wish we had spiders that big 8|! We only get the common european garden spiders which are the size of a fingernail. It's soon their season so I'll probably be able to post pics. And damn.. we have no green frogs at all. Only brown.
That caterpillar is an imitator, it tries to look like a bird poop to hide from predators, that should be a good clue to find what genus it belongs to. Also, as much as I love cicadas that is the only bug I am happy to not have here xD Such noise.
