Anyways, due to this nerve-wrecking examination, I have not been out taking as many photos (with my new camera) as I would have liked. Nonetheless, I still tried to take some photos when I came across critters in my place or during my walk to the grocery store/bus station.
Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) in flight.
It was a cloudy day, so some of the photos were not so great.
Common rough woodlouse (Porcellio scaber) crawling on my carpet. This blogger has posted some good photos and information on the same species (see here).
Unknown sac spider (Cheiracanthium sp.). This spider actually got irritated with me getting too close with my camera and tried to jump me. It was quite scary when you are looking at the magnified spider through the camera viewfinder.
Full moon on March 5th.
Common Mergansers (Mergus merganser) on open parts of Sawmill Creek.
Female Mallard with a leg band. Too bad my photo was not good enough to see any information on the band.
If the weather is permitting this weekend, I might go out and do some serious wildlife-watching and test my camera more thoroughly.
