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?
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.

Snakes are great, I love the picture of him hiding behind a very small leaf. I would count that as a successful hike to see so many cool things

Beautiful shots of these critters!
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!
Wow! The Woodpecker is an impressive looking bird.
