Again, documenting the abundance of this plant...
After it rained for a while, I was able to explore again. :)
I was thinking this was Ipomoea quamoclit, but the leaves don't match... So, I don't know what it is! :-/
Spotted this right before the rain really came down...
It was starting to rain pretty good now, so we had to cut the trip a bit short. Nonetheless, still quite fun. :)
Unique 'horned' caterpillar...
Would love some guidance on this one too -- I think it's in the Araliaceae, but it could be something else. :)
I'm not sure which Arisaema species is here.
This is a unique grasshopper -- I will need to study it some...
Another one that I've seen before but I can't recall the name now... :-/
Might as well document this plant too -- another non-native clover abundant along the ground...
This bird never did give me a good shot, but some of the other nature center folks looked at these pictures and decided it was a wood thrush.
I was amazed at how abundant this plant was all around Georgia... Another plant dispersed by mowers, perhaps?
I think... I was watching this butterfly for a while and thought it was one of the swallowtails, but I guess it isn't.
Neat tree next to the path by the Elachee Nature Center. What a cool place. :)
Very poor pictures, but some folks looked at this and said it is a summer tanager. Sounds good to me!
What a cool fly this was! Again, I sure would appreciate any guidance. :)
One of the nice sized snails climbing up a tree... Hard to miss!
Basing this ID on:
I think it's a spot on match -- these are different than the bright green planthoppers I see in TX.
Spotted some tracks by the creek.
The way that flutter as they fly is quite charming. :)
Such twisted trunks!
Some plentiful galls on these willow leaves...
Yes, even when I'm in the restroom, I'm looking for bugs. Found this fly by the sink. And yes, I did wash my hands. Geez!
