    He was looking for something to eat, clearly. I should try and get some good pictures of the dragonfly's making my gardens home.

    They zip around keeping the count of biting bugs down. :dblthumb:

    Great thread, thanks for sharing!

    Those jumping spiders are beautiful and intelligent. It's been shown that they have the ability to think and reason so yes, they are looking at you and sizing you up!

    I remember a documentary that demonstrated an experiment where the spider was placed on a platform and had the choice of two different routs laid out before it. One that lead to a dead end and one that led to a pray item. The pathways were constructed of suspended piping and wound around and intersected each other without touching. The spider very obviously scanned the scene as he bobbed up and down on his legs surveying the situation. Then with great determination and speed navigated the puzzle to arrive at the pray item and a free lunch.

    It was obvious that the spider was able to plan, use reason, and make a choice in order to accomplish a goal. Pretty amazing stuff!

    I hope that makes sense... Thanks again!

    Very cool thread, thanks for the posts!

    Wasp, that caterpillar looks similar to the ones up here in TN that sting, old folks called them 'packsaddles' but there is also a variety that does look like it is carrying a pack on it's back. Did a bit of research, and there apparently are quite a lot of 'pillars that pack a punch, and need to be avoided.
