Had spotted a white bundle of fur in a tree and after a time spent studying determined it was a Raccoon with either Albinism or Leucism. It shifted a few times over a couple of hours and finally when I had nearly given up, it briefly opened it's eyes. Which confirmed this as an Albino, as Leucism does not impact eye pigment.

@sambiology @mchlfx @wildcarrot I went looking for @jblinde Siren's but got distracted obviously. Has anyone mentioned seeing this animal at LLELA?

Descrição

I'm going back to some of my earliest wildlife images. These are scans from old prints and slides.

This swallowtail was photographed at a park outside of Taipei, Taiwan in about July of 1969 (annotated as "Summer 1969" on back of original). Identified from this reference:

Shirozu, Takashi. 1960. Butterflies of Formosa in Colour. Hoikusha, Osaka, Japan.

The several pink lunules on the hindwing suggest that this is a female (op. cit., pl. 16, p. 51). In that work, the Taiwan population of this east Asian swallowtail is termed Papilio bianor kotoensis. The following website suggests that ssp is "often treated as a full species".

This male was one of several dozen individuals on one of the main stems of a dying lacebark. I counted nine male/female pairs, some with a third individual (sometimes a noticeably smaller female, sometimes a male) which was usually chased off by the male of the pair. I got enough video to be able to confirm that the females appeared to be ovipositing. In addition, there were an indeterminate number of lone individuals roaming the trunk.

Two males apparently contesting access to a female. Although not apparent from the photo, the male on the right was noticeably smaller than the other male. They briefly pressed their heads together ('face-to-face') as if pushing each other before the smaller male backed away and, shortly after, scuttled away. The larger male then appeared to copulate briefly with the female and remained with her.

Came across a 43 year old slide that I had not posted before, so I scanned it for iNat. On June 20, 1975 (date written on original slide) I saw this male Painted Bunting in my back yard in south Austin. I recognized it from a cover illustration on the Robbins field guide I had at that time. It was my first Painted Bunting. It was this experience that drove me to go to a local Audubon meeting where I met other birdwatchers and began my life long interest in nature and photography.

Descrição

This species was tentatively recorded as non-fossil by @benhutchins in June of 2015.

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/2705512

A fresh-looking shell was also documented and suspected to occur as non-fossil by Richard Fullington in his 1979 report of Land and Freshwater Mollusca of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, but that report seems as if it had been forgotten until recently.

After much debate among us and several other experts about the fossil vs. non-fossil status of that shell (Oreohelix spp have been recorded from the Guads in fossil in previous work), we finally had an opportunity to return to this area and search for this species and perhaps answer the question once and for all. My bet was on non-fossil.

Benjamin Hutchins, Zachary Schwartz (my son), and I took a 2-day backpacking and sampling trip into the high Guads. Soon after arriving at the approximate site where Ben had previously found the shell, we started finding bleached dead shells, then a very fresh dead shell, and then finally 6 live specimens! We were also sampling litter to document the snail community in this habitat, and a number of other species also occur there.

Aside from the excitement of the 'snail hunt', this is a significant find for snail diversity in TX, because it definitively adds a new family to the list of snail fauna in the state. Thanks to Ben for instigating this search and for inviting us to be a part of it.

At this point, we are calling this Oreohelix neomexicana. It fits the description for that species reasonably well, though there is apparently significant variation in size and shape in the species. I am not aware of any molecular work that has been done to confirm that these mountain-top species from various ranges in NM are all the same species. The nearest site where it has been documented in NM is in the Sacramento Mountains.

Found on a west-facing slope. Collected with permission and permit.

Descrição

This record gleaned from the pages of "A Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians" by Roger Conant in the Peterson field guide series. I had a 1958 copyright edition of this book as a teenager, and still have it. In my younger years I wrote the location and date where I saw and/or captured certain species directly onto the pages of this book, and thus the information to provide this record comes from that. The first 6500+ records I posted on iNat had photo documentation, but now I am posting these records which do not have photos just to provide the data point for the species and location as best as I can for the historical record.

I was 11 years old at the time of this observation, and I still recall the snake spreading its neck like a cobra, hissing, etc. It made a huge impression on me. I was on a local boy scout hike and the leader knew what the snake was.

Descrição

You know you’ve found a large moth when…

  1. After a 40 year career as a wildlife biologist, you can’t believe what you’re seeing is real.
  2. Your ruler isn’t long enough to get a good measurement (2nd image), so you go back to get a longer ruler (3rd image) and that isn’t long enough, so you scramble around to find a carpenter’s measuring tape to fully span the wings (4th image).
  3. Your astonishment is like the joy of a child on Christmas morning; you start laughing and giggling uncontrollably.
  4. The largest moth on your sheet has a wingspan 40X the size of the smallest one.
  5. You stay up until 3:30 a.m. journaling about one moth.
  6. You start taking selfies...with a moth (last image).

To the best of my ability to measure this critter, the wingspan (with a bit of the tip of the right FW missing) is about 27.8 cm, so it would probably be about 28.5 cm (11.2 in) if it were intact. The species is said to have the largest wingspan of any Lepidopteran in the world.

The moth was initially discovered on the sheet by Mary Kay Sexton. I had overlooked it.
