Hi & thanks for the great information you share.
I’ve looked up many wonderful creatures on your site and I finally have one to submit 🙂
This cool creature fell from a maple tree onto our deck in mid-August. It’s about the most exotic thing I’ve seen in Indiana so what can you tell me about it?
Again, thanks for the info. you share with the world.
