Asian lady beetle
  Asian lady beetle November 11, 2010
These insects are beneficial in their native environments and some other parts of the world where they have been introduced because they feed off of soft-bodied insects such as aphids. In other parts of the world they are considered to be a invasive species and are out-competing other insect populations. Asian lady beetle

Locust Borer
  Locust Borer October 23, 2010
Feeds mostly on Black Locust Trees. Female chews or bores holes into the bark of a tree and lays one egg at a time. The pupae then bore further into the tree to develop into adults. They usually emerge late in summer. These insects have a sweet tooth, they usually eat pollen and nectar, but can be found snacking on almost anything that tastes sweet. Creatures like these are known to cause "Widow Makers"; giant tree limbs that can break off from high above, sometimes crashing down on i Locust Borer

Bee Fly
  Bee Fly September 30, 2010
This fly resembles a bee, thus came the name Bee Fly. The adults feed on nectar and pollen. They are part of a large family of flies with hundreds of genera. It is thought that their resemblance to bees offers them protection from predators. I personally think they are really cute. :) They are also pollinators and help flowers pollinate. Bee Fly

Bumble Flower Beetle
  Bumble Flower Beetle September 29, 2010
Scarab Beetle Family When flying the Bumble Flower Beetle looks and sounds like a Bumble Bee which probably makes it's travels a bit safer, as many would be predators might avoid it for fear of a brutal stinging. The adult beetle eats nectar, pollen, sap etc. It lays it's eggs on rotting wood, dung, or decaying foliage to incubate over winter. The Bumble Flower Beetle larvae hatch in the early summer. When threatened it emits an intensely pungent, chlorine-like smell. AKA: Brown Fruit Chafer Bumble Flower Beetle

Orb Weaver Spider
  Orb Weaver Spider September 28, 2010
The building of a web is an engineering feat, begun when the spider floats a line on the wind to another surface. The spider secures the line and then drops another line from the center, making a "Y". The rest of the scaffolding follows with many radii of non-sticky silk being constructed before a final spiral of sticky capture silk. Orb Weaver Spider

Indigo Snake
  Indigo Snake September 28, 2010
The indigo snake gets its name from the glossy iridescent blackish-purple sheen it displays in bright light. The largest Indigo was about 9ft long. (Source from Wikipedia). This specific Indigo snake was at least 4-5 foot and very thick. I found him the back of my grandfathers yard. (Its a 'junk' yard) where there was plenty of prey im sure, and lots of dry places to hide. Indigo Snake

I hoped your site might be able to identify a pest that is ravaging my grape vine. The leaves are being destroyed in their hundreds by small black caterpillars that I cannot identify. I desperately want to get rid of them and prevent them returning. I live in the south of Spain in Europe. unknown small black caterpillar

They dine on plant sap using special mouth parts. They're a little like vampires, but not as scary. They are, however, considered to be a vector species, along with some others in the genera. They harbor a pathogen known as Xylella fastidiosa, which is the cause of many leaf scorch diseases endemic to the Americas including California, Texas and Brazil. According to the online article Permaculture Perfect Harmony in the Garden, by Cameron Scott & Laura Vanderpool, "Planting petunias rep candy-striped leafhopper

Clark's Nutcracker
  Clark's Nutcracker July 19, 2010
The most important food resources for this species are the seeds of Pines (Pinus sp.), principally the two cold-climate (high altitude) species of white pine (Pinus subgenus Strobus) with large seeds P. albicaulis and P. flexilis, but also using other high-altitude species like P. balfouriana, P. longaeva and P. monticola. During migrations to lower altitudes, it also extensively uses the seeds of pinyon pines. The birds regularly store more than their actual needs (up to 33,000 seeds per bird! Clark's Nutcracker
