Late in the afternoon, I observed a Bold Jumping Spider on my front porch. The second one in about 9 years. It was all black with white dots, and a greenish mandible. Very handsome. It was actively hunting.
Flying in dry grassy area with mustard plants, milk thistles and some trees.
Looks like a shelf fungus on a dead birch branch. I need help with the identification.
The fish was caught with a fly fishing rod in a park pond. The source of the Green Sunfish is not clear at this time, but someone probably stocked the pond with them.
