Observation notes: This little guy was sitting on my coconut fiber welcome mat. I've never seen one like him. I live in the Lowcountry of SC, surrounded by saltmarshes. It was a pleasant, temperate day. (Although the second picture is of poor quality, I included it to give an additional angle/view. )
