Arachnids Abound!!

Spider week spun tales of how spider got eight legs, a new and expanded rendition of the Itsy Bitsy Spider, as well as nature art inspired by spiders!!

Tree With a Face needed "hair". Dead Bracken fern did the trick!

Tiny mushrooms are everywhere!

As well as Western White pine cones. 

Brave foray in to the Oregon Grape. 

The newt we found hiding under a log! About six inches long, I wonder if it's the same one I found two years ago in the same area!

Log hopping is a favorite pastime for these frogs. 

Most spiders we found this week were under logs. This one was on the defensive. 

What s treat! I love leaf skeletons!

Beetles are always worth observering. 

We've never seen this show species before. 

Flashlights help us in so many ways.
