Description

Came around meauwing, next time I looked behind my back it was taking from elm seeds I think juvenile house sparrow and digesting it. It was already early evening and none of house sparrows were at open ground, neither they were alarming the event. So even though place would suspect it predated unaware young sparrow feeding on elm seeds, but I guess more likely there has been earlier car collision instead.

This is Phillip, the first initiated member of my very official LAS (Lanternfly Assassination Squad). While I did supply the lanternfly nymph, it was found within 10 feet of the spider. I was curious if the resident jumping spider was large enough to eat the third instar nymphs, and the answer is yes!

I watched an ant attack and drag a spotted lanternfly nymph over the course of a few minutes. The single ant managed to hold on as the lanternfly flung both of them into the air multiple times. Finally, the lanternfly stopped resisting, and the ant dragged it down between the gravel stones.

This location has a large lanternfly infestation as well as an ant colony.

The 2nd of 2 cats found consuming a dead Sylvilagus floridanus (Eastern Cottontail) cub, belonging to a nest which was raided (very likely by one of them) earlier that day. The other individual was likely the culprit given that they were filmed investigating the nesting site, appearing to already be aware of its existence.

These small ants took the dead caterpillar from the larger ant (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/215786635). I’m not sure if they’re the same species, or if they stole the caterpillar

I've changed all the interaction field names from "Interaction: " to "Interaction->" to stop them messing with the photo tag processing on photo import. When adding photos already tagged with fields to the "Add an observation" page, it was only grabbing the field name text after the colon and so not working properly.

Everything works now that the colon is gone, so long as you use a recognised taxon name. For example, if I tag a photo on my computer with "Interaction->Visited flower of=Rosmarinus officinalis" and upload it, it will get this field added with the taxon Rosmarinus officinalis.

That can save a lot of time if you''re maintaining your own photo library in your computer and tagging lots of photos there and uploading them all at once.
