Date posted: June 19, 2021. Last updated: June 21, 2021. (More photos added, and see corrections below)
(1) In an earlier version of this piece, the six spotted tiger beetle was incorrectly referred to as a green ant both on the title of the post as well as in the photo caption.
(2) Also, the photographer is not certain whether the animal that he has referred as being an otter is indeed an otter or whether it is a weasel, a mink or a muskrat — it was referred to as a muskrat in an earlier version of the post but an animal lover mentioned that it is an otter, so we updated the title and captions accordingly. Readers who are familiar with birds, animals, flowers, plants and trees are requested to point out our mistake(s) by emailing correct species name(s) to Simerg@aol.com.
(3) The daylight moon photo shown was captured on June 19 (illumination appx. 71%) and not on June 20 (appx. 81%) as was stated in the caption in an earlier version of the article. The full moon will occur in Toronto on June 25th (please visit time and date, an excellent resource for moon and sun phases around the world).
