South Texas Critters

Location: Rio Grande Valley

Here are some critters I found around the park -- two spiders (what I think is a jumping spider, and a tiny green spider that I have not been able to identify at all), a snail, and a bee targeting a flower:

Aydin--
Just waiting for the right snail to come along! And I thought of you the entire time he was posing for his closeup (or... SHE was posing for HER closeup?). For those that don't know, Aydin writes a blog called Snails Tales, and knows more about the critters than anyone else I know.

I agree great snail shot. The snail is Helix aspersa which was introduced from Europe. This species is perhaps the most widely eaten of all European snails (that is why it has been introduced where Europeans have settled). I hope you did not let it get away.
