I was happy to spot these tiny spiders yesterday morning.
Thanks so much for continuing to document to the life cycle of the Green Lynx Spider in your garden. Your hatchling Spiderlings are so cute. The weakest among them will most likely provide food for their more aggressive siblings, ensuring that only the most robust individuals with the best survival skills will contribute to the gene pool of future generations. Since we both know that Daniel is the only person who deals with the content of What’s That Bug? I can dispense with the use of the royal we in this response. I am currently creating some homemade signage to post in Elyria Canyon Park where there is a patch of native milkweed, Asclepias eriocarpa, that comes up every year, though it sometimes gets trampled to the ground when brush clearance is too aggressive along the paths. I would like permission to use some of your monarch caterpillar photos with the signage, though I have never seem any Monarch Caterpillars at the location. More on this later because I will be late for work if I don’t tear myself away from the computer now.
