A Rich Habitat

One of my favorite places to go is Madison Buffalo Jump State Park. It has a very rich habitat for insects. I never fail to find the coolest stuff out there. I can hardly walk a few inches without tripping over my next subject. Consequently my hikes never last very long and I have yet to get very far on any of the trails. Also, being a desert environment, it gets very hot, and I burn quickly. However, I never hesitate to brave the heat because of the coloful creatures I find out there.

Spider with Hornet Prey

This is a beautiful creature. As far as I can, tell he's a wasp mimic. Might be a thick headed fly.

Gorgeous Caterpillar. Don't know what it'll be.
