Northern Caddisfly Larva - Limnephilidae
This tiny guy showed up today at work in a 500ml water sample taken at Wekusko Lake. The debris case was about about 5mm by 5mm.

Orb Weaver - Araniella proxima
This is my favorite spider of 2013. I photographed it in mid July. A spider with a face on its butt. How cool is that!

Cicada - Okanagana canadensis
This one was singing near Birch lake this summer. Okanagana canadensis is a common northern species which even gets up into the NWT.

Apple Maggot Fly - Rhagoletis pomonella
Back in August I found this cool fruit fly with a spider pattern on its wings. It was on our hops vine.

Picture-winged Fly - Callopistromyia strigula
July was a good month for Picture-winged Flies. I like the way they hold their wings open at times, ready for lift off. This one was in the herb bed around the oregano.

Picture-winged Fly - Ceroxys latiusculus
When we were at the farm this fall I noticed quite a few of these striped flys. They seemed to do more walking than flying and were constantly shuffling their wings.

Larder Beetle - Dermestes lardarius
I found this beetle crawling across the floor in the lunch room at work. That makes sense. They are often found where food is stored.

Tissue Moth - Triphosa haesitata
The temperature was about 5°c the other night when this Tissue Moth showed up. I love their colors. It's always a treat to see one.

Snout Beetle - Glocianus punctiger
At only 3mm B spotted this tiny beetle while we were out in the yard. Their host plant is Dandelions and the larva feed on the seeds in the flower heads.
