Dart Moth - Sunira decipiens - Hodges#9958

Porch lights never let me down. On most mornings when I checked to see what was out there, I usually found a few different species. This one was near the front entrance.

Sinuous Bee Fly - Hemipenthes sinuosa

I wish this guy would have stuck around for a few more pics before it flew off.  It is a new species for me.

Grass Spiders - Agelenopsis

Grass spiders are very common throughout Canada, so it was no surprise to find this one. Since they are docile I was able to get a few pics.

Huckleberry Grasshopper - Melanoplus fasciatus

This grasshopper was up in the Fylton Forest by one of the paths. I was lucky enough to get a picture before it jumped away.

Running Crab Spider - Apollophanes margareta

I was very happy to find this spider as it was one I hadn`t seen before. Plus it was very cooperative for the pics. Most of the time they use those long legs to head off in the opposite direction. This one was on the east side of the barn.

Bark Crab Spider - Bassaniana

One spot where I knew I would find bugs was up at the compost bin. Thats where I found this little guy, but I only got the one photo before he hid on me.
