Description

This is a southern watersnake, Nerodia fasciata fasciata, photographed at Grand Bay WMA in south Georgia on 28 February 2012. After a week of cold temperatures and lots of rain, the watersnake was basking on a clump of dead dead limbs between a dirt road and a canal-channel. The snake was quite thin and in dire need of a good meal. Still, quite responsive and alert. Just a little slower than the Nerodias typically are.

Description

With thanks to Kueda, it looks like this is some species of genus Parmotrema. They're related to lichen, but not actually lichen (lichen is a genus, not a family).

I done learned somethin' new, y'all!

Kudos to Kueda. Again!

Any fungi experts care to try to whittle this identification down closer to the species level?

Photographed in south Georgia on 28 February 2012.

This fungi was photographed in south Georgia at Grand Bay Wildlife Management Area on 28 February 2012 -- toward the end of what will hopefully be our final "cold" snap and after a week of fairly constant rain. Any help identifying this would be greatly appreciated!

This fungi was photographed at Grand Bay WMA just east/northeast of Valdosta, Georgia on 29 February 2012 -- after a week of chilly weather and nearly-constant rain. Any help identifying this would be greatly appreciated!

Description

This is a new spider for me. It was found under a rotting log in Grand Bay WMA in southern Georgia, a bit east and north of Valdosta. It looked like the spider had a web built under the log, though it didn't look concretely funnelish. Coras medicinalis?
