Wasabi tentatively sitting on the part of my belly she can step on (this did not last long). 🐘

Took a walk around the block, caught up with some spider friends 🐘

A very cool find from the other day: a pirate spider, _Mimetus puritanus_ (family Mimetidae). As the name suggests, they prey on other spiders. I found this one usurping an orbweaver spiderling's tiny web.

This historic victory was prefigured by the rollerblading Raptors mascot gif winning SBnation's sports gif tournament, as the sacrifice of the lamb after the binding of Isaac is said by some Christian theologians to symbolize the sacrifice of Christ. In this essay I will

There's a fenced-off vacant property in my neighbourhood with a lawn that is basically waist-high now. I was walking past thinking, "see, this is the perfect habitat for spiders," when I saw a bold jumper emerge from a hole in the fence to take a look around! 🐘

A very satisfying outing yesterday. Saw many spiders including the new crop of bridge spiders, mating mesh-web weavers, mating long-jawed orbweavers, and this "lifer", dwarf spider _Hypselistes florens_.

🐘

I also found an Uloborus glomosus! Often called hackled or feather-legged orbweavers, this family of spiders has completely lost the ability to make venom. This is the only non-venomous spider in Canada. (As for the rest, aside from black widows, their venom doesn't affect humans.)

Spider with juvenile orchard orbweaver, _Leucauge venusta_! (They hang upside-down from horizontal webs, so I stuck the macro lens on my selfie camera. Worked surprisingly well.) 🐘

: the globular springtails have emerged! You can see these tiny yellow critters milling around on leaves in the garden. They engage in courtship dances, with the male (the smaller one) twirling the female around.

the worst part is, there may be a tool or a way to do it using their API. cool right? just get an API token

but you can't get one any more

you have to literally sEND THEM AN EMAIL AND ASK AND THEY *MIGHT* GET BACK TO YOU

ALKDJFLAJFLKJALKFDLAKJF I JUST WANT TO NOT USE YOUR SHITTY EDITOR OH MY GODDDDD

First Zygiella spiderling on the garden fence! 🐘
