This spider moved into my bathroom recently.
I found this crane fly in a flower bed, about to be disturbed by a smaller fly climbing the stem below it. The smaller fly decided to leave quickly.
Scarlet Lily Beetles are an invasive species in North America, and can devastate lily gardens. They’re easy to spot.

This crab spider was crawling across my jeans, so I took some practice shots with my borrowed 50mm lens.
