Neocicada hieroglyphica, the Hieroglyphic cicada, photographed in Lowndes county, Georgia (23 June 2013). I missed the actual molting, but caught the little one all chillax, waiting to get its kickassery going. Also: can't believe I just said "chillax" and "kickassery." That's what cicadas do to me. They destroy my language. Janson Jones, http://dusttracks.com.

Tibicen auletes, the Northern dusk-singing cicada, photographed in Lowndes county, Georgia (18 June 2013). This very well may be the same individual as featured here: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/418732. It was photographed about three to four hours later on a different section of the backyard fence. I can't confirm one way or the other, however. Janson Jones, http://dusttracks.com.

I was a bit surprised to find this N. domiciliorum still webbed up, out, and about just past noon on 19 October. Granted, it was somewhat shaded, but I don't often find these out in the open during mid-day. A cool spider, no doubt.

Turtles and Tortoises Order Testudines

Observer

Date

September 29, 2012

Description

This set consists of two turtles next to each other in Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in far-south Georgia. Specifically, this is in the Chesser Prairie region of the Okefenokee. My first impression was that these were Pseudemys nelsoni (the Florida red-bellied cooter), but they could also be Pseudemys floridana (the Florida cooter) -- two species of the same genus. Of course, I could be off on the genus, as well. Could it be Trachemys scripta? I'm simply not a turtle expert and I have some sort of strange cognitive dissonance when it comes to anapsids. Apparently. Any ideas?

Kayaking through the eastern Okefenokee, there were more than a few forktails dallying about. The blue one featured here is an adult female, I believe, and the red one is an immature femail. Having said that, I'm not a forktail expert, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong! Inquiring minds want to know!

I haven't seen a glass lizard in some time, but they are no doubt quite common throughout Grand Bay. This is an abundant --albeit secretive-- species. As our summer temperatures begin to ease into the less-harsh Autumn months, I expect to see more of these out and about at Grand Bay.

This is, I believe, Dolomedes okefinokensis, the Okefenokee Fishing Spider. Ranging throughout south Georgia and north Florida (at the very least), this is an impressive species of fishing spider found above the waterline, from where it hunts passing prey underneath. This particular individual was perched a few feet from the boardwalk trail at Grand Bay WMA and was rather fiesty. It wasn't happy I was photographing it and repeatedly moved to the opposite ends of its foliage to avoid my sightline.

Carolina mantis Stagmomantis carolina

Description

This lovely alien warship was cruising up a shoreline tree at Banks Lake National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia. I was stalking a hapless southern leopard frog, when the mantis caught my attention scurrying up the tree. When she (I assume she's a she because of her considerable size, but it's only a guess) was about three feet from the ground, she paused and wavered laterally, like a leaf blowing in the breeze. Then, she'd take a single step and waver again for a few seconds. Then another step, followed by more wavering. And on and on. An awesome mantis, an awesome encounter!
