Description

I am definitely not a master of brown algae, but I'm pretty sure this is Fucus distichus, rockweed. Further, after digging around http://www.seaweedsofalaska.com, it appears this is the subspecies F. d. evanescens. Pretty remarkable stuff. Southcentral Alaska never ceases to amaze.

Description

I thought this was a smaller, reddish blue land crab at first -- but alas, it's another species of land crab: Gecarcinus laterals, the Blackback land crab. A cute little critter, he was quickly scampering across the road in Big Pine Key -- in the Florida Keys.

Lithobates clamitans clamitans is locally known as the bronze frog, not the green frog. And for good reason: they're bronze, not green. I've seen a decent number of these at Grand Bay Wildlife Management Area northeast of Valdosta.

Description

I love being able to say that I caught a frog at the North Pole. heh. This is a wood frog, Lithobates sylvaticus, caught just northeast of North Pole, Alaska. The ability of wood frogs to survive the Alaskan winter with relative ease and little discomfort makes them far more suitable for Alaska than I. Impressive.

Description

In south Georgia we have the bronze frog, Lithobates clamitans clamitans -- the type/subspecies of Lithobates clamitans (the green frog). I'm not too familiar with subspecies status of this genus/species, so I'm tagging this as the general green frog. They're firmly established in Grand Bay WMA. This individual was found hiding in a root hole.

This spider was identified as Thiodina sylvana, a jumping spider, by the good folks at bugguide.net. An agile little tank, to say the least.

This was photographed in residential Mt. Dora, Florida -- on a fence.
