    I spent 5 days last week in the Davis Mountains, mostly hiking but I did have the chance to find lots of cool invert . I'll start off with some pictures of the view:

    I found tons of these grass spiders, their webs are pretty neat and I was lucky enough to find one with a sack!

    Here's a camel spider I found, little guy ran in front of me while I was going to the bathroom and ran off after this picture:

    Found a couple Loxosceles as well, this one is a mature male that was hanging out in the showers, I relocated him to some brush where he'd have a better chance of finding a girl:

    A click beetle! I think it's an Alaus oculatus:
