November 19, 2018

Location: Mt Dora, Lake Apopka North Shore Restoration Area

When you last saw me, I was Leucauge venusta,
Leucauge argyrobapta is my new name.
Scientists recently determined that
My northern relations and I are not the same.

Blatant plug: David and I are excited to announce that we will be participating in the Shop Small event at the Heritage Center in downtown Vero Beach, this Saturday, November 24th, from 9 a.m.-1:00 p.m. In addition to tours, we will be selling calendars, magnets, and our brand new field guide* (all of which feature my photography), as well as gift packages that include all of the above in a handmade reusable tote bag. We hope you will come out and see us, and support us, as well as the many other local businesses who will be there. Visit the Heritage Center facebook page for details.

* The guide is in print as we speak. If it is not available by Saturday, you can pre-order and we will deliver as soon as it's available.
