Nature Observation 2

On Sunday October 18 it was a cold 43 degrees and somewhat sunny with a bit of clouds. I was once again in front of the Olin hall steps around the main entrance. The weather was the same as last week just except it was earlier in the day today than last week. I haven't noticed any changes since last week I saw most of the same bugs but I did see a new spider this week and then got a plant that I didn't have last week. I didn't observe anything different with the bugs most of them were just standing still or weren't eating . I used the red spots on the red alder to tell it was that plant versus the other ones. I learned that all of these bugs have been in Mount Vernon for a while and that the giant crib spider isn't actually as big as you would think it is with the name giant. I think I have seen all of these bugs before except for the giant crab spider. There are a lot of of the red alder plants outside of olin and I see the False honey ants and the genus halyomorpha quite often. The only one I don't see a lot is the spider, that was a new one for me to see today. A personal reflection of the assignment for me today was I enjoyed the other one a little bit more, partly because I was cold outside today. But I also found more interesting bugs last week compared to the ones I saw this year. I still found out some things I didn't know this week with some of the bugs.
