Last Stop

This was the last stop they had wanted to scout, Rucker’s Pond. This unit is one I have visited often for several reasons. It is close to our house and the pond is great for letting the dogs take a swim. In fact, a person had his dogs splashing in the water while he was fishing when we arrived.

Jerry took this wonderful photo of a Daddy Longlegs. He took the photo earlier in the day. Anyhow I am sharing it here now. ๐Ÿ™‚ And thanks Jerry!
Did you know puffballs are edible? I didn’t until just recently. However I am still sticking with the grocery store for my fungus. However this article, Species Spotlight Puffballs Agaricaceae family is a nice overview of the family.

An American Beautyberry caught my attention with bright orange glow!

Flipped it was red.
Nodding Ladies-tresses (Spiranthes cernua) popping up everywhere!

Jerry spotted a Gulf Fritillary(Agraulis vanillae) caterpillar on a very small Yellow Passionflower (Passiflora lutea). I just hope it was going to pupate soon as there was not much of the plant for a meal.

It had been a very nice day! Thanks Jeanne, Jerry, and Susan for inviting me along.
