Forgotten Photo Friday – Theridula emertoni

This post marks the first installment of Forgotten Photo Friday!  Once a week I’ll dig around in the (thousands!) of pictures I took in the past year, and feature one that makes me say, “Hey!  I forgot about that one!”  

These will be largely text-free, but I’ll at least try to identify the critter(s) in the post.   I think it will be a nice break from what’s bound to be a few months’ worth of photos starring snow, grey skies and bare trees (and frequent ranting about the insanity of this term’s workload/panic over my comps…both of which are, like, OMG!!!1! o_O).

To kick things off, I’ll start with this tiny, nifty little gal, whose portrait I was pleasantly surprised to find buried in a folder of pics from this past September.

    Cute as a button. Was this taken in Ontario?

    Nice find, and good shots. It’s always great going through old folders and finding nice shots we’ve forgotten, this would thrill me. Thanks for sharing, and hope the workload doesn’t get out of hand.
