:: An Insight into the Natural World II :: Lets see the Invertebrate Wild Creatures that visit, or live in your backyard, front yard or just come onto your property (farm, etc.). Any type of Invertebrate animal is okay, e.g. Insects (butterflies, moths, bees, wasps, etc), Spiders, Scorpions, Centipedes, Millipedes, Snails, etc. You may like to view this as an ad-hoc survey of the bugs and other creepy-crawlies that you live with (sometimes unwittingly).
