    Some of you all have already seen theses pics but I figured I would post these here for those who havent. We did this the first weekend in June in Ozark County, Missouri near the town of Gainseville. We found all sorts of stuff. The terrain there varies from woodlands and bottomland fields to glades. Glades being the place we did the most searching since there is a very unique diversity of both plants and animals.

    Mygalomorph (would like to know which species)

    Sounds good Mike. I think you would enjoy our Bug Hunt. We plan to make it an anual event in Late May/Early June
