Nice beetle! I'm no expert but I'm guessing it is from the Genus Cicindela - Common Tiger Beetles. My guess for species would be Cicindela tranquebarica. You might want to check out some images of that and see what you think. Mardon (reply...)

Hi, I'm curious about the ID of "Thymelicus sylvestris". I'm not an entomologist but I think that species is not known to exist in North America. Is there any chance it might be "Thymelicus lineola"? There's lots of them in Newfoundland. What do you think? To my eye they look similar. Regards, Mardon (reply...)

The body was about 1 cm long. I think it was larger than the common house spider but not as big as the giant house spider. (reply...)

I use a Canon 1D Mark IV camera, an MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro lens and a Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX flash. "ababa" was a reference to your photos here: http://ballz.ababa.net/tclenche/church/ (reply...)

Thanks Thomas, Yes. The mites are very small. I think if they weren't red nobody would even notice them. I've seen your photos here and on 500px and ababa. Very nice images! Mardon (reply...)

it was so interesting to watch. I am trying to figure out a way to catch one to photograph and release. I want detail to ID the little critters. There is so much going on in that pond, it is fascinating.
