Lesser Yellowlegs Hate the Word "Myriad"

This adorable first-year Virginia Rail was found by none other than the infamous Don Mastwell (with chimp support).  His reputation should be well known to all citizens of the blogosphere.  It was last seen this morning diving into the burrow of a Cassin's Auklet.  Will it be present tomorrow?  It is impossible to know.

This is a jumping spider--a member of the family Salticidae (same root as Saltators, which are named for jumping/hopping habits--nomenclature!)  Jim Tietz found it in his room--what species is it?  What genus?  I have no idea.  It could be endemic to the island--we simply don't know.

  1. A few years ago rolex replica uk switched from a green toned lumed to a blue one. This not only made the lume glow blue, but allows for it to look more white during the day. Rolex replica uk also increased the size of the hands and hour markers a few years ago when they introduced their "Maxi dial" style which I personally liked, but of course proved controversial. Every change the brand makes is controversial, even when they did something small such as removing the lug spring bar holes on the exterior of the case. The rolex replica sale Submariner dial is a testament to legibility and functionality. The Rolex Submariner replica watches uk is a tool watch with a slick design that lasted the test of time. It is good because it was never design to be anything more than a good looking, legible dial. It is a tool, and we like tools that work well. Rolex replica watches also makes their own dials. Precision machining and printing on the dial is very good.
