Bug Art Wednesday: Harvestman

Harvestman

Harvestman

You might think a Harvestman is a spider but it isn’t. Unlike a spider, a Harvestman only has one body not two parts like spiders.

Also, a Harvestman doesn’t produce silk or spin a web.

Their two eyes are set in a little mound on top of the body where they get a good look around for anything small to eat!

Harvestmen live in forests and gardens throughout BC.

Bug Art Wednesday: Six Spotted Fishing Spider

Six Spotted Fishing Spider

Six Spotted Fishing Spider

The Six Spotted Fishing Spider is amazing because it walks on water just like water striders! They live in ponds throughout BC and are small in size at about 15mm in length.

It was thought that these spiders eat fish but so far no arachnologists have recorded this event. These fishing spiders are like many other spiders in that the females eat the males during or after courtship.

These Six Spotted Fishing Spiders can crawl around on underwater plants when they do this they breath by trapping air in the tiny hairs that cover their bodies and legs.

Space Art Monday: Comet C-G

Alien Dust Mite

Alien Dust Mite

The Rosetta mission is exploring the composition of comets and successfully made the first landing on a comet called Comet “C-G”!

Comets like Comet C-G, are believed to be primordial clusters of ice and dust left over from building of the Solar System 4.6 billion years ago.

According to astrophysicists, comets are important because they contain insights into how the planets formed.

Will they will discover any micro alien dust mites living there?  If they do they just might look like the creature on the left.

Happy 2015!
Here on Earth the weather is gray and foggy.
What’s the weather like out in space?
Just guessing but maybe some gas storms are blowing!

I’ll be working on updating this website and focusing more on my fantasy creatures like this alien species to the left.

Stick around. I’ll have a new ebook out soon too!
