This is the tree I photographed a couple weeks ago, here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19357940

Inside the skin, the fruits are mostly extremely soft flesh, at least now. There are three seeds in each berry, and the seeds are kind of oval and a little bit flattish.

I finally found a pot that a potter wasp made! So cool!

It was tucked under the edge of a log used to line the mulch path in the wildflower meadow.

And above it is a spider egg case.

According to Charley Eiseman, who is the expert on this, there are in fact two different Liriomyza species that make these linear mines in White Snakeroot leaves, therefore I have to change all the previous IDs.

This shell was collected by BJ Stacey (@finatic) while he was on a one-night two-day trip away from his one-week Sanibel visit. During the rest of that week he and his wife stayed at the same hotel as myself and my husband.

BJ brought back a group of shells from Bark Park Dog Beach in Boca Raton, and I examined them. I photographed the rarest ones and the most fragile ones so I could attempt to nail down the IDs when I was examining the material in person, rather than trying to do it weeks later from photographs and maybe from broken pieces of some of the shells!

This is an Asian Lady Bug which is infected with the Green Beetle Hanger fungus.

This observation is for the fungus infection that has attacked the beetle.
The original observation for the lady beetle is here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/14578944

Amazingly, this fungus infection does not interfere with the beetle's life really -- they feed, they mate, and carry on as normal.

I can't help thinking it must be uncomfortable at the very least!

This species is rare on Sanibel. I think that some valves came in with beach replenishment sand.

I found the first one of these a number of years ago and took it to the museum. But at first José Leal, the curator of the Bailey Matthews National Shell Museum, was not sure that this was a genuine occurrence, so he waited until someone else found one before he accepted the species onto his excellent photo-illustrated database here:

When I came back to my room, I noticed that a small dark insect was struggling in the water in my foot bath outside the door to my hotel room.

I thought it was an ant. I fished it out, and as I was putting it on the ground I got out my cell phone and took a shot. I could see that it was a funny-looking beetle.

For some reason it stayed perfectly still rather than running away, so I was able to get a couple of decent photos of it.
