I've been getting so many glimpses of these but never an opportunity to photograph one. I rushed to get my barely working 300mm lens from my car just to take a shot and this was the best I could get. At least now I can check this one off on inaturalist!! Yay!
Brilliantly camouflaged Jumping Spider. Very common one I just don't know its name.
Curious as to what the flowering plant is.
I just cant remember what they're called. Someone help?
Very small flowers.
Maybe someone can help me classify this more specifically.
Wouldn't mind a second opinion but at first glance this was my guess.
I'm curious as to what this fungus looking growth is on these leaves. It wasn't on all of the leaves on this plant but only on the upper area of the plant. There was a little ant crawling around so I'm wondering if this ant is harvesting this fungi?
I can't believe I saw this today while I was out. The weather has been very warm the past couple days and here it is December 5th in Pennsylvania and I'm seeing a Wood Turtle basking on a rock in a stream. Just amazing!
There were 3 adults here and 1 Juvenile. This is a favorite place for these birds to hangout on the spillway for an easy lunch.
It might be impossible to tell, I don't know. I think this is the invasive Rusty Crayfish. I don't think there are any other crayfish that match this coloration in this area. Let me know if it just can't be determined by this photo.

There was a family of these being fed by the parent that me and my son stopped to watch. The youngsters were all trying to get food from the parent in flight as they would fall almost completely to the ground. The overcast was dreadful today and I couldn't get decent lighting for any good action photos.
This photo was from a great distance and it's seriously cropped and sharpened. This is the first time I've spotted an Osprey not flying above. I've seen several flying around this area this year so far but not close enough for a decent photo.
