Borderland State Park   Leave a comment

The hottest part of a very hot and dry day.  Spent the whole walk sweating and swatting flies and mosquitos.  The insects were missing, and the ones that were around were busy and elusive, so not too many photographs.  In the end: a wonderful afternoon walk.  It’s always nice to be out in the woods.

First a few non-invert photos! In hindsight, I *really* wish I had used a wider aperture for this shot.




Neriene radiata.


Zelus cf luridus nymph.


I think this is a 0299  White shawled Isocorypha, Isocorypha mediostriatella.


Anthomyiidae, in the process of, um, scathophagiding.


Vespula flavopilosa worker.


Cryptocephalus mutabilis in Chrysomelidae


I think this is Atanycolus in Braconidae.


Ancistrocerus adiabatus


Unknown.  Could be Anthomyiidae.


A pemphredonine. Something in Pemphredonini tribe.


So many of these beetles on this cluster of flowers!  Podabrus basillaris, I think, in Cantharidae.


Gnaphosidae, I’d say.  Maybe Drassyllus (but that’s probably wishful thinking, there are few sightings of Drassylus).






A fly, Micropezidae, maybe Rainieria antennaepes.


Male mutillid, likely Timulla sp.
