Fruit Fly - Tephritidae

I wasn't surprised to find a fruit fly with all the orchards around.

Grass Spider - Agelenopsis & Black Vine Weevil - Otiorhynchus sulcatus

I was looking for spiders around the barn when I came across this combo. The grass spider didn't stick around long, the weevil didn't have much choice.

Millipede - Cylindroiulus caeruleocinctus

There is a very large stump close to the barn where the California Quail like having their dust baths. It is on that rotting stump that I spotted the millipedes. Apparently they are an introduced species from Europe.
