The idea of this is to get you out looking, shooting, practicing composition etc. The only pictures allowed in this thread are to be taken within ten feet, outside your front door/backdoor(sidedoors are ok).


I'll start it off with a caterpillar and orb weaver.






Araneus gemmoides with damselfly dinner.

A Robber Fly found in my back yard. Holocephala species?

A Jumping Spider (Paraphidippus aurantius) from by back deck, that decided that it would rather explore my lens than pose for photographs. I let it do both.

A Potter Wasp (Eumens fraternis) from my flower beds last Fall.

Really, you have crayfish within 10 feet of you? Colour me jelly!

These are awesome photos, each and every one. Thanks for sharing!

Yep, we have a little creek, that's where I found the Dolomedes vittatus too!
Yes some of these images are suspect. Are you sure they are all ten feet from your door? Measuring tape and photo maybe be needed. ;P

Ok.....you got me! That wasn't my house, I was at my friends house, he has a creek that goes between his house and a church beside it, it IS ten feet from HIS house though. Did I break the rules? :( lol

Haha hopefully topic creator can let it slide ;).



Here's my contributions. Pictures probably aren't that great, just snapped with my phone.

Suspect Tussock Moth Caterpillar :



Some kind of Cicada (as you can see missing a leg and a half) :

Found less than 10 inches from my door, which is also in the picture:


Neoconocephalus ensiger, the Sword-bearing Conehead Katydid:

Almost looks like it's wearing a tiny shiny metal hat with streamers sticking out the back.
