Animals of Maine

It’s been a while.

With the beginning of school, peewee hockey, and lots of other stuff to keep me busy and/or exhausted, I haven’t had time to blog. I might as well do it now while iOS 6 is downloading in iTunes.

As promised, here is a small album of animal photos I took while in Maine nearly a month ago.


The pink phase of the Heterocampa umbrata (white-blotched Heterocampa moth) caterpillar. The blotchy green caterpillars turn pink when ready to pupate.


A monarch chrysalis on day 11 of pupation. My iPhone focused on the background foliage instead.


This crappy photo doesn't do justice to this magnificent Orgyia leucostigma (white-marked tussock moth). See the video clip below.


Skunks are cute and a good way to attract them is to leave food on the ground.


Although rare, the toast-headed Samoyed can be found nosing around campfires.


This female bipedal pack mule shows none of the resentment common to the breed.


A rear view of the same.


Snuggling teens can only be photographed when unaware of the process.

Here’s a much better look at the white-marked tussock moth.

What belated event will I write about next? Stay tuned!

Bonus iOS 6 aggravation:

When you move apps more than one screen, the iOS dims the screen and refuses to comply. Just move apps one screen at a time.
