Jumping Spider with a "blow fly" prey (family: Salticidae)
Female Jumping Spider (family: Salticidae)
Jumping spiders have some of the best vision among invertebrates and use it in courtship, hunting and navigation. Though they normally move quietly and fairly slowly, most species are capable of very agile jumps, notably when hunting, but sometimes in response to sudden threats.
Beetle (family: Coleoptera)
Blow Fly (Scientific Name: Lucilia, family: Calliphoridae)
It is quite similar to a house fly, though larger. Pretty fly with a metallic body which can be green, blue or black in color.
Argiope Spider (family: Araneidae)
It belongs to a family with members around the world, many of which build webs with the type of white "stabilimentum" which you see here, whose purpose might be to help birds and other animals to see the web, and so avoid damaging it.
Longlegged Fly (family: Dolichopodidae)
A beautiful tiny insect measuring only about 1 cm. with lovely pattern on its luminous body.
Carpenter Bee (family: Apidae)
Carpenter bees can be important pollinators on open-faced flowers, even obligate pollinators on some, such as the Maypop, though many species are also known to "rob" nectar by slitting the sides of flowers with deep corollas.
