Today (07-May-2017) — New Jersey

My house pet. I haven’t seen one of these for a long time. This one got caught in my bathtub and couldn’t get out. I’m told they eat other insects and spiders. After taking the picture, I let it go outside. Now that is starting to warm up outside, I am seeing a number of ants scouting the house for food. After my renovation and spring cleaning they are not finding much.

Today (07-May-2017) — New Jersey

First Sunday in the Park organized by Montgomery Friends of Open Space. This month it was a walk through Rock Mill Preserve looking for spring wildflowers led by Sarah Roberts. Although it was cool and there were a few sprinkles, we did see a number of wildflower and other spring growth along the trail. Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 60 mm f/2.4 macro lens.
