Lifer Ghost Tiger Beetle. Listed as Imperiled in Ontario, only known from a couple of widely dispersed locations in the province. Requires undisturbed sand dune habitat. Not easy to spot a white beetle less than 1 cm long on white sands. Took 4 visits to locate, thankfully this time I spotted 6, maybe due to the fact this was the first visit with no groups of ATV riders ripping up the dunes habitat illegally.

A couple of favs from the last couple of days...

White-eyed Vireo ~ It took me more than a year to even get a picture of them, so I'm still excited when I get one LOL :)

Yellow Warbler in the elephant ears.  My inner artist loves this shot LOL :)

Bell's Vireo ~ Not a great shot, but the best shot I've ever gotten of one, and it was a new yard/county bird too :)

Tiger Salamander - September 13, 2017

Rain fell last night for what felt like the first time in two months. Four of these beautiful creatures were spotted this morning walking through my yard. They may have been even more happy than I was for the moisture on the ground.

Congratulations on the lifer! Sounds like it was quite the job to find one. 

They should lay hidden spike chains for those ATV fools. :angry:
