Description

This Northern Water Snake (Nerodia sipedon) was basking in the middle of a pond there were 7 painted turtles (Chrysemys picta) on the same log but they dove into the water when I approached. The snake was about 1.5m in length and sat on the log for about 2 hours before swimming away and consuming a bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus)

At rest, the folded wings caused the brown markings to look like an old dead tree on the moth's back. :)

A fuzzy hoverfly, around the size of a greenbottle. Appears identical to Bombylius minor, though I understand this family is very poorly described, and that beefly shouldn't be in the US.
