I saw some neat critters yesterday as I was wandering around with my camera.
This is a tachnid fly, probably a Cylindromyia sp.
A bullfrog found his way across the lawn.
A Blanchard’s cricket frog hopped along the edge of the road.
The gorgone checkerspot is fairly rare and easily confused with the more common pearl crescents or silvery checkerspots.
Finally, this is the year of the silver spotted skipper. Most years I can find a few, but they can be found in much higher numbers this year than I have seen.
