Once again insects were the reason for this trip. I think we managed to grab a few. Here are some of the insects and invertebrates we came across:


















































The mature male on the other side of the web was tiny compared to this girl:


Their webbing was quite thick. A few times I mistakingly walked through their webs.

It's amazing that the Argiope can take down prey 3x larger than they are. Any ID on the tiger beetle? Looks like one I saw in the central FL scrublands.

We traveled through a number of states. We started in Florida and then drove up the coast. In North Carolina we headed toward the Appalachians and ended in Virginia.
