Description

This resident hawk is frequently seen in the neighborhood. He (?) especially likes to perch in a tree above the backyard koi pond. Fishing line crossed over the pond has limited his predation, but not completely.

Description

Lots of fruits have fallen to the ground, and bare seeds indicate that many animals have feed on them.

Ken Moore of NC Botanical Gardens made a persimmon topping for ice cream for us.

Description

This photo was taken by my trail camera on Aug 4. I do not post observations that I do see myself. Yesterday, 16 Oct 2014, I saw a bear crossing behind me, a smaller individual, I would estimate 100 lbs, probably a yearling. I found were a bear had dug up a yellow jacket nest just up the trail, see next posting.

PS. Leave angry yellow jackets alone.

Closed bottle gentian is rare at this location. I have only discovered this plant, and another one located about 400 meters away (Oct 15 2011). When not in bloom, they are impossible to distinguish from other ground plants.
