I'm looking to a bit of (very basic) close-up photography at my desk, and need suggestions on a dual light source. Maybe someone has a lab-type machine with the two arms and are willing to part with…Continue

A bee fly and two tachinids

I took a short walk along the road opposite Kent Building Supplies in Fredericton yesterday, 18 July 2018. I managed to photograph three very interesting flies, a bee fly and two tachinids, one of which looked like a syrphid. These are:BOMBYLIIDAE Anthracinae: Anthrax irroratusTACHINIDAE Phasiianae: Xanthomelanodes arcuatusTACHINIDAE Exoristinae: Winthemia spI am fairly confident of the identifications, based on examining images in BugGuide, except for the Winthemia. All have been posted in…See More

Monarchs at Maugerville

I took a little trip this morning to the north end of the Burton Bridge in Maugerville, Sunbury Co. There were many milkweed plants lining the sunny side of the old paved road, and I was excited to find a Monarch larva, then another, finally a third. Two adults were also flying around but images of them were almost impossible. Total: 3 imm. and 2 adults.…See More

An undescribed potter wasp

Undescribed speciesI just found an interesting potter-type wasp searching my walls (of my house). I've just started a search of BG when I came across a posting of mine from 2011 of an undescribed (by M. Buck at BG) species of potter, etc., wasp (Eumeninae). You can see the images here: https://bugguide.net/node/view/532210. I hope one of you can keep an eye out for this species!!My new wasp is this one: Ancistrocerus.…See More

Hi Chris,
I applaud your suggestion for a group on moths! Would you like to add the group? I will certainly join, but I do not feel "up" to the level of being able to moderate it, although I can (and will) help with the technical (web-based) stuff.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for joining the dragonfly group! Although this site was originally called Birding New Brunswick, we definitely enjoy discussing all nature related topics that touch on nature in the Maritimes. If there is anything with regards to the function of the site in general you have questions about, there are lots here who are definitely happy to help. Like Bug Guide, we all all a bunch of volunteers trying to make sense of the natural world and still learning lots ourselves, but so far it has been a blast and has worked out very well. Enjoy!
