Description

Spent 15 minutes watching this anhinga play with its food, bashing the fish against the rock, tossing it dramatically into the air, and even momentarily letting it slip away into the water before grabbing it again . Eventually, perhaps intimidated by approaching great blue heron, the anhinga itself slipped or fell fell into the water and lost the fish. Drama!

Workers about 3.5 mm long, found in a chamber in outer bark layers of a healthy longleaf pine tree. The chamber probably was originally made by a Givira francesca caterpillar.

About 4.5 mm long, collected from galleries (tunnels) in the phloem of a mature loblolly pine. Pics show the clumps of resin ("pitch tubes") on the outer bark where the beetles tunneled in, and the browning of the needles in the crown. This tree was just starting to visibly wilt, but many of the next generation of Ips beetles had already completed their life cycle and emerged.

Description

The presence of a silk mat within a closed leaf shelter is a definitive identifier for the spicebush swallowtail in the Northeast U.S. Although the inhabitant is no longer inside (either due to predation or larva moving to another site), it confirms that a caterpillar was once there.

Note sheen of the silk mat.

Description

This monarch was parasitized by a tachinid fly during larval stage. Perhaps unusually, the caterpillar had successfully become a chrysalis first before the tachinid maggot emerged out of its host (usually the maggots emerge while the caterpillar is a prepupa, terminating the formation of a chrysalis). Only one maggot emerged which may explain why the metamorphosis continued. However, the resultant damage is still seen in the adult form. The adult was severely crippled with malformed wings.
