Shown below are the bugs and beasties I've encountered around the islands. I've endeavored to get the name of the creatures, but no links. I hope you enjoy my snapshots. 

The photography I offer for Klamath Basin and these islands is copyright free. You are welcome to glean them and use them as you please. A link back here is appreciated, but not necessary.


Steatoda grossa-False black widow, cupboard spider, the dark comb-footed spider and the brown house spider

While spiders give me the creepy-crawlies, I do find them intriguing and beautiful. This one is an intruder and, in my book, a most welcome one. These are said to prey on and displace the true Black widow that thrives quite happily in my studio. I hope this girl's invasion burgeons!!
