It’s a wrap

It did not take long for me to get photos for today’s post. This morning’s Gracie walk was just perfect.

Stepping out the back door, a Rabid Wolf Spider (Rabidosa rabida). The males have dark front legs like this one.

As we made our way, a pair of mating Common Wood-nymphs (Cercyonis pegala) were on the red oak! Wikipedia says other common names are the wood-nymph, grayling, blue-eyed grayling, and the goggle eye. I like the last one. However, I am sure to forget that name LOL and will continue to call it the Common Wood-nymph. 😉

In our woods at the fence, this spider’s web made me think angel! Do you see it?

Peeking through the door, I could see how feathered Edgar has become! He is about 66 days old now. Note: I do not know what gender Edgar is really. It is impossible to know by just looking at Black Vultures visually.

No baby talk for Edgar! The nestling sounds just like the grownups!

Not a turkey wrap, but the Buffalo Treehopper (Stictocephala alta) wrap for the Orb Weaver! Yum! And that’s a wrap for today!

  1. Awww, Edgar’s getting so big! I do see the spider web angel. It also reminds me of an old finger string puzzle I used to do as a child called Jacob’s Ladder.
