“I don’t like spiders and snakes.”

You gotta look up as well as down when walking the trails. This guy was hanging over my head. I think it’s a harmless black racer.

Does he think I can’t see him behind that stick?

A pretty silk orb weaver. These guys were all over the trails.

Spotted orb weaver. This and the one above are the two I see the most on the trails.

Next time I’m going to count how many of these I see down the trail. I’m guessing more than 50?

Up close.

A pretty type of flying bug, I don’t see many pink dragonflies around.

This guy was hanging in the port-o-potty in the parking lot.

She said, "I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
You fool, you fool
I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I want to be loved by you"
A great oldie from Jim Stafford. He grew up in Winter Haven, Florida. Not too far from where I took these pictures. I never paid much attention to this song but now when I’m walking the trails I end up singing it.

  1. Thanks for the earworm (but no need to eel guilty, because I already hum it every time I walk our trails here in Oregon. Though here I see spiders and slugs, not so many snakes.) Guess if we’re going to have the joys of a green humid climate we have to put up with the critters who love it too. Wonderful pictures!
