I left my phone behind today while kayaking/fishing. The pictures you could've been viewing otherwise would have been of a green heron, a large beaver, a whitetail deer, her fawn, and a great blue heron. I also watched an injured broad-winged ...

My co-habitant, he lives behind the garden wall, 3' from my kitchen, and I'm sure is responsible for a decrease in the number of roaches and centipedes. However he likes to sit in each 1 gallon plant pot where I'm starting fruit trees, making a big ...

The tiniest toad I've ever seen. I named him Frank. This was taken seconds before he jumped from my hand and under someone's shoe. RIP Frank.

Another beautiful and fearsome wasp. A mud dauber maybe? It was investigating a black widow nest. I read that the wasp hunts for black widows.

Can't get enough of North America's silk moths? Interested in getting more involved with them, but don't know where to start? Well then, I have a deal for you! I have an overabundance of rosy maple moth and Luna moth eggs, at present. I'm willing...

My Attacus caterpillars are almost 4" long, now. They've done a lot of growing on the past week! I think if I had reared them outdoors in Ailanthus, rather than indoors on Syringa (lilac), they would be significantly larger.
