Excellent shots - I love the jumping spider shots.

The Tiger mosquito looks like it had a meal not too long ago.

The last picture is a good shot of a bad actor. I wouldn't let one of those live long enough to have its picture taken, let alone bite me or my animals. These distinctive Asian Tiger mosquitos, having been introduced in tires shipped from Japan to Houston in 1985, are now widespread in the Eastern US, and were found in 2001 in Taiwanese bamboo shipped to Los Angeles. They are known to be vectors of Dengue Fever, Dog Heartworm, Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Fever, and who knows what else - that doesn't mean every one of them is carrying something dangerous, but the potential is there if one bites an infected host. Swat first and have no regrets!

Thanks everybody...I'm so glad the creepy crawlies are back out again. I've been working on portraits and recital photos for my girlfriends dance studio so much lately, I had to work on something to keep me sane!
