Woodhouse's scrub jay spotted by Brian38 St. George, Utah, United States 4 hours ago

This is my first spotting of the Woodhouse's scrub jay. They usually forage in pairs or family groups. They differ from the California scrub jay by having a darker grey underneath, dingier blue, and a slightly straighter bill.

Bagworm Moth favorited by tomk3886 Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 4 hours ago

As I have said in previous spottings of Bagworms, I know very little about these strange little creatures. What I should really be saying is that I do know something about their life cycle (because I read it in Wikipedia and Philippine Lepidoptera every time I post a spotting featuring one), but this minuscule amount of knowledge does nothing to help me when it comes to identifying a Bagworm. That is because there is so little solid information available. So, there I was this afternoon in my backyard with my camera hoping to see something nice and easy for a Project Noah spotting and what did I see? Not one, but two bagworms! At first I thought I needed new spectacles, but no, I really was looking at two of these "difficult to identify" Bagworms. Maybe they should be classified as Cognoscere perdifficilis :-)

Their bill is long, straight, and very slender. The adult male has a black face and chin, a glossy purple throat band, and a dark forked tail.

Red Grasshawk favorited by tomk3886 Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 4 hours ago

Libellulidae; Neurothemis fluctuans (Fabricius, 1793). I observed this dragonfly yesterday and managed to take a number of photos. It was flying around under some tall trees, apparently enjoying the shade. Its flights were short, only a few seconds, then it would land on some foliage (always in the shade) where it would be motionless for longer periods (maybe 20 to 30 seconds), before flying off again. Its flights were not as close to the ground as, for example, any of the "Ground Skimmer" dragonflies that I have seen, but it was very noticeable that it never flew very high. In general terms, I would say that its flights and landing/resting spots (at least the ones I saw) were between knee level and chest level, which made it relatively easy to photograph.
