Hickory Tussock Moth caterpillar- Some people are very allergic to these little guys and they can cause a nasty rash.

There are so many cool spiders at the pond right now. In an effort to not become too spider heavy I am breaking it up with cute fluffy caterpillars, enjoy!

Damselflies have a weird way of dating. The male holds onto the female while they get to know each other. Sometimes he doesn’t let go so that no other boys can date her. Sound familiar ladies?

Fishing Spider Nursery- Fishing Spiders don’t build webs, they hunt for their prey. The female Fishing Spider will carry her egg sac with her until the wee spiderlings are ready to hatch. She then builds the only web she ever will, a nursery web. It’s usually low to the ground and near the pond. She watches over them until their first molt.

Finally got a pic of Richard our local Snapping Turtle. Although they taste great in soup, snapping turtles can live 100 years. We won’t be eating Richard….this year.
