I went fishing on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY. I didn't have any success with the salmon run (it was a bit early), but I was delighted to see a giant swallowtail nectaring along the river. That was a real surprise, so far north.

My first female atlas is eclosing right now! No matter how many times I witness this I'll never get tired of seeing it.

A cute slimy salamander that I found under some firewood. Slimy salamanders are common, locally, but secretive and not often seen.

Rescued this little buddy from the wet sand water's edge on the beach today. I thought it was dead but it frantically grabbed my fingers when I touched it so I carried it home and gave it some sugar water which it seemed to like. Now it's just ...

I found an ant mimic jumping spider today. I spotted it when I was bug hunting with my daughter. This is only the 3rd one I've seen in my life, but they are pretty much my favorite. Mostly because they combine my two favorite insects.. ants and ...

I'm moving my sleeves tonight, in preparation for vacation. I think this has been my best year for polyphemus caterpillars in a long time. Here are a few shots of some of "the gang". I'm sleeving them on scarlet oak and they are doing beautifully!...

This probably doesn't look that impressive to anybody outside of the UK, but trust me, around these parts this is a massive spider (Eratigena atrica I believe). Can of Monster for reference.
