I was very surprised to see I could make pics of such a tiny worm, because I don't have much of a macro lens.

Great link.

Geschu, I don't know which one it is.

Oh Cerinthe, I am so sorry Embarassed. That is a great photo !  I do not have a macro lens either and I have a terrible time making the close-ups.  I need to get out and dig around more. I find these little critters facinating !  It is like Winnie The Pooh says .." Sometimes it is the smallish  things that take us the most room in our hearts" Smiling

Hi Geschu, I'm not Gerda but I can tell you that her caterpillar is what we call an Inchworm or Looper.  They are the larva of the Geometridae family of Moths.  Another facinating little critter . They have a strange way of moveing. They only have feet on the front segment and on the back segment. They move by walking their back end up to meet their front end, it appears that they are measuing out length.  Sometimes if they are disturbed they will stand straight up and try to look like a twig. Here is some info on these little worms if you would like to know more

The other day I found this little one crawling around and it was fascinating to watch it go.

If you look at this pic it should fall over

This is one of the spiders that are so common around my house.  This is the Spiny Orb Weaver. Webs are usually much neater and quite lovely. This one has been repaired many times. Photo was taken by holding a poster board behind the web ( I only had red LOL )
