This was out in the middle of the river so it was hard to get a sharp image. I took advantage when it flapped its wings. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe its a juvenile Common Merganser?
There seems to be a Green Heron at every body of water I've visited this year.
Growing on mulch under bush. I think it is a mold.
Several fence lizards found along the railroad tracks behind Chiques Rock Park.
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.
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
My first photograph of a "Hairy". I've seen and heard them so often but never was able to get a decent photo. This shot wasn't great but its better than nothing.
My closest photo of a Deer. We scared a couple but this one didn't know we were near and walked right past us. Once it noticed us she snorted and ran. I think I see Deer in this area every time that I visit, but I've gotten better at sneaking up on them :)
