Long time no post. My health took quite a dip over the past couple of weeks, and spring “break” means longer work hours. I had a couple of collapse episodes, but at least I got to know our carpet better (I need to vacuum!).

We made a quick run to Joppa Preserve over the weekend, which was refreshing. Not too much going on just yet, but we did find this beautiful Graham’s Crayfish snake.



And a feisty one at that.

Then there was this cool jumping spider chowing down on his greens like a good little boy.


Look at those fangs! I believe this species is Phidippus audax, in which case this is the first time I’ve seen blue fangs in this species (They’re usually bright green!)

What’s your favorite thing about spring? Hope you’re finding time to enjoy it.
