Hey robirdman...
I didn't see an email address for you so I posted here, in hopes that you'd see it. You can email me at

I few months ago you took a photo of a little round beatle like thing, brown with orange and white spots on the outer edges.

I took a photo of the same unidentified thing the other day. I was wondering if you ever got any ID or info on it..
