In the front yard of the library in burton.
This tree was very tall and wide. It was late in the season so the leaves were turning yellow.
The tree was very short and thin compared to other maple trees. This was probably due to it being younger than other trees.
came to my bug light.
Watched this beetle repeatedly walk around, beneath, and over this dead critter. It would not stay still for a decent picture. I'm pretty sure this is the Tomentose Burying Beetle; that yellow-ish pronotum stood out, but other opinions are welcome. First time I've ever seen this species.
First Geauga County record in 2014. Glad to see reproductive evidence in 2015! Pictures--mating wheel, mature male, immature orange-form female, mature female.
Would be a county record for Geauga, but Ohio Lepidopterists are not yet accepting photo records.
I found this White Oak tree at the Geauga County Fair. The shape of this leaf is so special,there are more than 4 lobes, and the leaf is alternate and simple. I think the tree is probably 40ft tall and the bark is shaggy.
This flower was growing under a dense canopy of fairly mature growth oak/maple forest off the drive way of a residence near Burton, Ohio.
