Many of you will know what FOS is shorthand for; first of season. Already there has been many FOS. So I have mentioned a few of them this season like the Cymopterus (January) and Black Swallowtails (March).

Now is the time for protection again with my FOS tick today. You can bet I applied it to my gators.

A few days ago FOS Grapevine Epimenis Moth (Psychomorpha epimenis) flittered among the flowers.

Can you find my FOS Pale-veined Isturgia Moth (Isturgia dislocaria)?
And it let me get close to admire its scales!
Yesterday we had our FOS full bluebird nest completed!

FOS Engelmann’s Adder’s Tongue (Ophioglossum engelmannii) on the grasslands!

As we transition from winter many plants and critters will be making their appearance. Exciting! And it will mean even a slower pace for me (if that is even possible)! LOL.

  1. Such beautiful eggs. Happy to see them. And wouldn’t that antivenom be something. Sure hope it works.

  2. I guess I didn’t tell you – I had a tiny seed tick on my neck after one of my outings with you. Can’t remember which one, but I do remember thinking, “This is why I always had my Girl Scouts wear hats with full brims.” I love FOS sightings! So many happening now. And I guess a slower pace means we’ll go about 100 yards on Wednesday’s walk?
