The Beetles are Back at the Beach!
Georgia found a tooth sitting in the bottom of the little stream that comes out of Calvert Beach. She won the count today, with five teeth to my one.
Canadian Geese were hanging off shore. I don't know whether they're stragglers that haven't gone north yet, or "golf course" resident birds, that have learned to stay in Maryland over the summer. No sign of the Buffies today, so maybe they've gone north. They were here last weekend.
Puritan Tiger Beetle, which have apparently emerged from their burrows in the cliffs to swarm on the sand.
On second look, however, this may be the much more common Bronzed Tiger Beetle.
