I went out to the greenbelt next to our yard today and spied a Dagger Moth caterpillar
munching on the kudzu leaves. Maybe that's one way to keep that awful plant under control! I zoomed in on it as it ate the leaves. The tiny simple eyes are visible in this photo if you click to enlarge it. As I was setting up
my tripod, I noticed a little green tree frog
perched on a kudzu leaf. Let me tell you, kudzu vines and tripod legs don't make a good combination! Fortunately, both of these critters were amazingly patient with me and they tolerated a lot of shaking of their leaves. The frog finally got irritated and climbed on top of the leaf. The lighting was much better, I could see the pretty bronze color on its sides when it was in the sunlight.
Thanks to all th
e rain we have received lately, the mushrooms have been growing quite well. I noticed some of the old Magnolia tree cones that had their specialty fungi on them. Magnolia Cone Mushrooms
will grow only on the old cones. Isn't nature amazing!?
A couple of days ago when I went out to get the newspape
r I noticed something bright orange on a milkweed leaf. It turned out to be a newly molted Milkweed Bug
. The old skin is visible next to it.
