- From Pennsylvania, Kate of Outside My Window participates in IRFD… without flipping a rock! I guess we’ll allow that, especially since she found some nifty spider webs and a small mammal.
- Here in British Columbia, I (that's Heather - ed.) did flip rocks, and after many tries turned up a couple of worms and a pill-bug (or something like one, anyway).
- Elsewhere in the province, (I, Susannah) face similar challenges with dry rocks, but still manage to find a few things, including (unfortunately) some non-organic debris.
- And to the south in Washington state, Dave Wenning of Wild Fidalgo flips rocks on the beach (and in his garden) and finds several Purple Shore Crabs. And a few other things. Even if he didn’t look very dignified doing it.
- Bill finds several critters under his rocks, including a beautiful millipede. (A beautiful millipede? Well, I think it is.)
- The WNY meet-up page includes a number of rock flipping discoveries, such as a lovely speckled salamander and a pair of slugs from Barbara Newman H., and a pretty black beetle and another salamander from Mark. I’m jealous – I wish I could have found a salamander!
- Sara Rall flipped paving stones and came up with a good variety of small critters, including a rove beetleand a ground cricket.
- Rob Cruikshank found ants and pupas, and a cute white springtail.
- Paul Fehringer, of Wild Spirit Education, found a red-legged beetle, and a strange (to me) centipede.
- And John Beetham found a spider with the intriguing name of Amaurobius ferox. Among other beasties.
