Bugs in my back yard.

I love bugs, I like taking photos, put the two together, what do you get ?

Captured wolfspider; our house was sprayed with pesticides, I dropped her off on the neighbors wall.

All these photos will probably be on my site dhymers.com soon,
with the exception of the robber fly on dog poo. Probably.

  1. Hey! Awesome creatures! The wolf spider is too scary 😀
    I’m impressed by your identification skills 🙂 “family Salticadae” – I should pay more attention at the bugs around here. And nature in general… been trying to identify all the trees – there’s many more species than I realized.
