Backyard bugs and unknown visitors of the Northeastern United States

What have you spotted? Is there anything that you can help identify? The world is a fascinating place. :) even the creepy crawlers. The question that I'd like to answer in some aspect would be, with all the climate changes, is there a change in where the smallest creatures are taking up residence? Sign in to join mission

The surprise visitors that we stumble across while either minding our own business, or exploring our environment can often capture our attention. Sometimes, they wander into our homes, or plop down next to us, whatever way they traveled... they are now finding themselves in front of a camera. Its great is we know what it is we just snapped a picture of, but whats also great, is maybe someone can help us figure out what it is? Northeastern US only.
