Found in the split on the underside of a watermelon from the garden. I believe it to be the same as others that I accidentally photographed through the year while taking pictures of other things...just guessing... looking at Genus Polydesmida..

Description

Under a large limestone rock near the front step...little guy about 2...maybe 2.5 inches from head to tail..very sluggish in the cool weather.. I had to prod him into a small hole beneath the rock so he wouldn't get hurt when I put the rock back down.

The leopard frog who ate the fly who looked like a bee. He has a cool pattern on his back...others I have seen have spots that almost seem to have a starburst pattern coming off of them in vert rays.

fly pretending to be a bee...several of these guys were congregating around my little frog pond...I hadn't seen them before and wondered why...then I found a vole dead and floating beneath a leaf... after I removed it the flies disappeared...not before a young leopard frog made dinner of one.

There were several of these beetles along with spotted cucumber beetles occupying a goldenrod bloom. These beetles showed no inclination to move even when prodded and if bothered too much they simply fell straight to the ground in spite of having obvious wings.

Orange eyes and concave plastron make this guy a ...well a guy. He has very bold, striking markings (particularly the very cool markings on his head...I never got to see his legs as I gave up on watching him after about 20 min) ...quite a lovely ...err...handsome fellow. He looks similar to the default photo of ornata and I am not yet entirely sure it he is eastern or ornate.
