Gotta look

Can one really not stop to look? In fact, it may be in the DNA of a naturalist to stop. 😉

The American Basketflower was going to seed. The comb-like phyllaries are awesome!

A good year for the Standing Cypress! And Thomsen has its share 🙂

One Standing Cypress decided to stand out in the crowd with these pale orange flowers!

A grasshopper takes a moment on the Rough-stem Rosinweed (Silphium radula). A little different from the others in the genus with its ovate leaves.

Rattlesnake-master (Eryngium yuccifolium) was abundant!

Jeanne can not pass up a nest box check!

She was rewarded with Carolina Wren nestlings! Pop builds the bulk of the nest. Ma does the finishing touches with a fine lining. (Nests, Eggs, and Nestlings of North America Birds by Baicich and Harrison).

Concluding the Thomsen Foundations finds. Tomorrow on to the Garnett Preserve!

How plants turned predator

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.
