Our September guest photo-editor, Andrée Sanborn, selected some amazing photos from over 2,000 observations submitted to the Vermont Atlas of Life during September. The most popular photo-observation by vote was like a field guide plate to Whirligig Beetles (Family Gyrinidae), shot and composed by David Hoag. Our runner-up this month was a beautiful look at a Yellow Garden Spider (Argiope aurantia) by Jeremy McMullen. Thank you to all of the observers for sharing your amazing observations. We can’t wait to see what is found this month as the October contest will focus on fall colors!
