Well pictured is the famous camel spider known by many different names. Also known as the sun scorpion and wind scorpion. I found this camel spider in my backyard 2 years ago. This camel spider was a major pain to photograph. This spider was only around 1 inch long but it was extremely fast! I had to chase this spider around to photograph it. Here in New Mexico, USA I find these around once per year. Since they are somewhat difficult to photograph, I do not get that many good pictures of camel spiders.

Picture of the famous black widow spider. This black widow spider has a red and white striped on the back. This photo was taken a few years ago. This year I have found 5 black widow females in my front yard this year. The black widows I found this year have been around 1/2 inch to 1 inch long. I have never had a spider bite me and I hope the black widow spiders do not make it into my house.

Pictured is of a orange horned orb spider. This spider weaves beautiful spider webs. This spider was a little large than one inch in size. I have horned orb spiders in my garden usually every year. This photo was taken about 2 years ago. This year I have a brown horned orb spider on my porch, but have been unable to photograph the spider yet, because it has been raining a lot. Since it is fall I hope to find some orange horned spiders this year. Orange horned spiders are very cool looking.

Picture of a gray wolf spider sometimes called a ground spider. Here in New Mexico, USA there are a lot of wolf spiders. Most range in size from 1/2 inch to 1 inch in size. This wolf spider pictured was around 1 inch. Wolf spiders are a little difficult for me to photograph, as they are fast and do not stay still for long periods.
