I just realized I have a pretty hefty backlog of photographs from this spring and summer still, which is cool since two of my lenses aren’t really working right now and I’m not sure when I can get them fixed. So today you will have spiders. Snazzy spiders. They’re not gonna hurt you, don’t worry. (Top to bottom: some kind of jumping spider feasting on a cranefly? Mayfly? Giant Lichen Orb Weaver, a funnel spider type, and another sort of jumping spider)
Jill Wussow is a seasonal field biologist, nature photographer and nomad. She has worked with several federally endangered bird species (including the Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo and Piping Plover), sea turtles, and bats all over the United States. She is rarely in one place for more than a few months at a time and her whereabouts are often confusing. Field work has given her great opportunity to travel often and meshes with her passion for wildlife and nature photography perfectly. Through her photography, Jill hopes to convey her love and respect of the natural world.
