I had a great time in Madison and NE Minneapolis this weekend!!! Thanks again to everyone for your kind words and support. Meeting all of you and seeing people get excited about the jewelry I create makes my heart so full 🧡

Barely saw this Maple Spanworm Moth (Ennomos magnaria) on my way out of the grocery story yesterday evening. I turned to pick up my sons stuffed raccoon and saw what looked like a fall 🍁 maple leaf on the brick, but something looked off about it. I took a closer look and sure enough, it wasn’t a leaf at all—it was a moth! Funny enough, while the adults are perfect leaf mimics, their larvae are twig mimics. If you want to be mildly creeped out, swipe to the second photo to see its creepy little face close up. 😂

Have you ever seen one of these before? What’s your favorite kind of Moth or Butterfly?

Holy Fungi, Batman! The doggo and I went on and evening walk and an unexpected mushroom hunting adventure!! 🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🔍 #shrooms #mushroomhunting #naturenerd #eveningwalk

I ran a pretty cool race at A-Basin on Saturday. Time to train some more so that I can do better next time.

Heeey y'all, wouldn't you know I finally made it back for #crowonshittuesdays w/@drunken_yogi

Full disclosure- I took this last week. Apparently that's the only way I can get my shit together for this hashtag😂

Misumena vatia, the Goldenrod Crab Spider. Not on goldenrod this time but not far away. I was searching for Goatweed Leafwing caterpillars on Croton plants but found this beauty instead. These spiders generally hang out on flowers and wait for pollinating insects to land and then they ambush them. #crabspider #spidersofinstagram #naturenerd #inaturalist #naturalhistory #arachnidsofinstagram

Let the sun shine through your soul ☀️ So much is happening at Murphy Acres these days, it is making me appreciate nature’s gifts that much more. Stay under for an update on a mini photo shoot inspired by our connection to nature and letting it be more a part of your homes 🏡 .

A throwback to a trip to #algonquinprovincialpark back in June. We happened to arrive on THE magical day for female snapping turtles to be laying their eggs, and saw 14 turtles within about a 2 km stretch of gravel road, and another dozen or so nests along a sandy bank. Snapping turtles are just so awesome. They're like prehistoric tanks! #naturenerd

Caught another bug today 🙂 #rusticsphinxmoth #moth #giantmoth #naturenerd

If only I could start *every* Monday this way... in the quiet of the woods, with my two favourite wildlings, no plans, no timelines, no shoes... climbing trees, catching toads and millipedes and discussing their bodily functions 💩🌳

When all you can do is stare.

Waiting on the ferry. Day off tomorrow and am so ready for it!!!! #WaterLover #Naturenerd

Couple of cuties coming off the island, it's not often we see them this small!
Live sanddollars are brown/purple/greenish and are covered in short, bristly hairs. Be sure any sanddollars you collect are white like these and leave live ones in the water!
