Powder Gun Moss Diphyscium foliosum

Observer

Date

August 17, 2009

Description

I know the pictures aren't great but this is the only record I have of this moss. An old botany professor showed me this patch. Unfortunately, he has since passed away so I can no longer ask him to confirm the ID for me. The grain-like structures are actually the sporangia of this moss. It is unique in that its sporophytes have no seta (or just a very short one).

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Sphyrapicus varius

Observer

Date

Description

Yellow-bellied sapsucker sucking on the maple in my yard. The pictures of the bird were taken through multiple layers of glass so there is some weird ghosting that my camera wasn't able to eliminate. Unfortunately, the bird flew away when I opened the window to get a better picture. I'm sure she'll be back. They've tapped this particular tree for several years now.

Wasp nest in a dogwood tree across the road from the Daniel Boone Native Gardens. Based on the similarity with the one I had in my apple tree, I assume this was built by bald-faced hornets over the last summer.

Skunk cabbage pollinator? I didn't see the fly until I looked at my pictures on the computer screen at home, otherwise I would have tried to get some more close-up shots. I found it on several of my pictures from different angles, so it must have been sitting there for quite a while without me noticing it.

Male monarch fueling up on the flowers in the restored tall grass prairie at the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center in Ohio. They had a monarch waystation with a whole bunch of chrysalises still waiting to release their butterflies. I'm not sure if this was one of their raised butterflies still sticking around from an earlier release or one passing through on migration.
