Spiders

These small wolf spiders have been in every layer of leaves I’ve looked at closely in Green-Wood for a couple of weeks now. Not grass, leaves, which give them so much cover.
So many in the Dell Water I was afraid I’d step on them. They are runners and jumpers.
A different species, and found in different habitat. This time a leaf pile. There was a small beetle as well, but it was too quick for me.

On Thursday, they’ll be some more here about leaves and the critters they hide. (Thursday! Two whole days away, and people say I’m a pessimist!)
