The utmost highlight of my entire day!! This little guy was sitting on the stream bank waiting for his parents to come feed him, doing the little bounce that gives dippers their name. It was SO CUTE. A video of Junior showing off his dance moves can be seen here: https://youtu.be/XsoY6vkEPro

Description

I was absolutely THRILLED to find this guy marching across the parking lot at dusk. I scooped him up in the only container I had so I could take photos once the light was better, though he really didn't want to cooperate for a sunlight photo shoot the next day. I'm assuming this is a male who was looking for a mate. Legspan is slightly larger than my palm. Desert Tarantula seems to be the most common species in Utah and the only one with observations in Utah County, so I'm going with that ID unless someone tells me otherwise.
I'm planning to release him at dusk back where I found him.

Update as of 8/24/2021: I released this guy at dusk on the 23rd and have added some photos from the release. (Photos 7 through 11)

I found this male A. minutus on Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) seemingly feeding on nectar. I thought it was strange based on my knowledge of the adult beetles feeding behavior being on sap flows/tree wounds, but I figured there was likely documentation somewhere on this behavior I just hadn't read yet. After sharing the photos on bugguide and with an entomologist friend with a focus on beetles, I'm learning this may be a more significant find than I realized. Of anyone knows of literature regarding nectarivorous feeding behavior on this species, please share.
