Album of Mission Beach Field Trip
Selected photos from a spider collecting field trip to a forest
east of Mission Beach, Snohomish County, Washington on 21 November 2007. Abbreviated
collecting time, plus an unexpectedly soaking wet site, conspired against me
but a rich leaf litter sample contributed to an adequate sample of 26 species.
Photos by Rod Crawford.
