Looks like its about to shed.
I am just now posting this sighting from a year and a half ago because until someone just pointed out that it was a Map Turtle, I had just assumed it was a Painted Turtle. This would make my first and so far only observation of a wild Map Turtle so I'm very happy someone noticed this error I made on Flickr. This observation was made during the crest level of a flooded Susquehanna River.
I had some cool shots of him catching minnows but I forgot to adjust the settings and they were blurry :(
There were a pair of these hawks hanging out together near this baseball field. I almost immediately thought I was seeing my very first Red Shouldered Hawks. I can't be 100% certain though. Can someone help me identify these? I know the photos aren't great but when I got any closer they flew away.
Not sure if someone would be able to identify this mushroom by this photo. It was interesting because it was growing deep inside a rock crevice where it was hard to get a photo of it.
Saw this as it was attempting to kill a North American Millipede. Not sure what it is though.
Was curious as this looks like a moth at first but then I had my doubts if it was a moth at all.
New Unique Eagle Observation
I posted this for the yellow "American Carrion Beetle" but now I wanted to know what the orange colored beetles were specifically.
Cousin of the "Bed Bug" this "Bat Bug" was seen crawling around and on this baby Brown Bat.
Correct me if I'm wrong, not positive if this is a brown bat or not. They are here every year and there are many living in this pavillion. I could hear this one's high-pitched calls and found it near the ground attached to this pole.
