Research Encounters

 

One of the most common critters I encounter while conducting vegetation surveys on Santa Rosa Island are spiders. They often build their webs on shrubs, reeds, and forbs. The spiders abdomen and carapace are often about the size of a quarter. They are very uniquely colored and are intriguing creatures.
