My main interest is photography and distribution of dragon/damselfies but it is hard to pass up the opportunity to photograph any insect.

A spider, Elaver excepta, found in my urban basement was the first image of this species on BugGuide.

Other images that were first images posted to the species on BG.
Anotia robertsonii:
Stenotabanus psammophilus:
Rhagonycha vestigialis:
Melanoplus rusticus:
