Hi Ellen- New to your blog, and really excited to find it! I'm from Western NY, but live in the Northern Catskills now. Have spent many summer in the ADKS ~Raquette Lake area. Cool bat widget, they are interesting critters!
What a fun widget. I may need it for my blog as I love bats - thanks for pointing it out.
Hi Ellen, The firefly larvae you described below in your 2010 blog is a Pyractomena borealis larvae. They climb trees and vegetation in early spring looking for an aerial pupation site. Keep up your great observations! LynnWednesday, April 7, 2010Adirondack Insects: Fireflies, Firefly Larvae, and Glowwormsby Ellen Rathbone
