It looks like a Red elderberry bush judging by the leaves. The berries usually ripen about this time of the year but they can be toxic to humans.  (reply...)

This is a stink bug- an insect in the Pentatomidae family.They really do have a terrible smell, thus the name.I'm no expert by the way, I just have sons.  (reply...)

I've routinely seen ants carrying other ants, and can't tell if they are dead ones or not. I'm wondering if they might be carrying dead ants back to the colony to use as food?  (reply...)

Hey TT, could you let us know a bit more about this bat sighting you reported? Presumably if you saw it during winter it was hibernating somewhere underground (?) and people are keen to learn more about hibernation sites for bats on the Island.

Thanks!

Just a quick note  that this is actually a Ruffed Grouse - they do look quite similar to female spruce grouse though and are less common than Spruce Grouse in Gros Morne NP (reply...)

Thanks. For these photos I used a Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro. The max pic size that people can post here at NLNature is 800px x 600px. If you want to see a higher resolution version of these images you can go to: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/833776 and look at the version labeled "original". That image is still only 1500px wide though and still less than actual original image size. (reply...)
