Long-jawed Orb Weaver and web - Tetragnatha versicolor

Long-jawed Orb Weaver and web - Tetragnatha versicolor
Duck Lake, Glacier County, Montana, USA
July 22, 2006
As you can see from this small section of web, orb-weavers can do some serious insect control. This spider's web was about 12 inches in diameter and completely filled with midges (and an unknown fly).

# 3,000!
Hi Lynette,
I've been watching your numbers. This is your 3,000th image on bugguide. Hats off to you :-)

 
Thanks, Jim
How do you watch the numbers?

 
Sneaky!
Click on someone's name to arrive at their personal page, scroll down to and click on their Photos Submitted by This Contributor, click on the "opposite-end" arrow, and look at the last number in the URL for that most recent page of thumbnails. It corresponds to the count of their photos up to and including the most recently posted. (The last number in the URL for a normal bugguide page corresponds to the node count for the Web site, which includes images, guide pages and forum pages.)

As far as I can tell you have the second most images on bugguide and I have the third most. Yours and mine together lag far behind Tom Murray's. Check it out :-)

 
I see!
You're getting up there too with 2955!

 
Yes,
I've been working hard to get all my New Mexico images culled, sorted, cropped, PhotoShopped, and posted. It's good to see you putting Montana on the map for so many taxons.
