Description

These ants and their aphids were under a rock, quite cold and not ready to wake up yet, when I rudely flipped it over. I hadn't realized before that ants will store an aphid colony underground.

Ben Coulter's best guess is that these may be L. claviger

Description

My neighbor told me there was a copperhead in her basement. She knew it was a copperhead because it looked just like the copperhead that her father had once shot out of a tree. I didn't want to criticize the memory of her brave father by telling her that copperheads don't climb, so I brought my toddler into her basement to see what was there, and we found this.
