Biodiversity Walk May 2016
Wildlife everywhere! But too busy to stay still for my camera. Here are some of the creatures I spotted during a 3-hour walk.
Tiny crawfish in about 3 inches of water.
Finding plenty to eat in the flowing water.
This is my first spotting of an Ebony Jewelwing damselfly here.
Slaty Skimmer, female. This is a new species for the farm.
I am pretty sure this is a Blue Dasher.
Molted exoskeleton of a scorpion.
Ruby-throated hummingbirds are showing up in the greatest numbers we’ve ever had.
Now I’m going to cheat a little bit — I saw these animals on my walk, but didn’t get pictures. These next two pictures are from a few weeks ago.
Northern Cricket frogs are about 1 inch (2.5 cm) long.
Summer Tanager male.
If you would like to see the complete list of what I saw, you can check out the “What I Saw” page in the tabs at the top.
As you’ve probably guessed, I’ve been away from my computer and now trying to catch up. Always anxious to see what you’ve found!
and I fell behind on comments! Hope everything is fine with you!
