This one looks new to me. I could use some help. The only sound it would make is a *Kiss* sound behind me while it was hopping around inside the bushes.
Was at dusk and nearly impossible to see this bird with my naked eye. I wasn't able to make out what it was until I got home and I believe its a house wren but correct me if I'm wrong. I've seen alot of Carolina Wrens in this area and this would be my first House Wren if it is indeed one.
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?
Stopping through on migration. First time I've ever seen these around where I live though.
I've only ever made one other Owl Observation in the wild and it was also a Great Horned Owl. This one unfortunately was deceased along the road near my house. I actually stopped to see if it was the Red-Tail hawk that I would see almost daily at this location sitting on the power lines. I was surprised to see it was an Owl as I haven't seen one in this area as much as I've been looking. Its nice to know they're out there but too bad this one didn't make it. This is a busy back road that keeps getting busier and unfortunately the wildlife takes a big hit for it. I've seen several foxes and deer dead along this road. I've also rescued a large Snapper Turtle from crossing.
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!
