Taking a stroll...
in our front yard!
Chicken aka Rat Snake
Note the big round pupil, helps identify this non poisonous snake. The poisonous Coral snake has a "slitted" pupil.
Photo taken with a Macro lens.
Leucauge venusta, Orchard Spider and prey.
Heart Shaped Pond
A Rush in Flower
Sedges have edges, rushes are round.
Rose by the front gate.
Dragonflies often land in the same spot over and over, making it fairly easy to get a photo if you are patient.
This looks like a yellow-bellied slider to me....???
We are at least a couple of blocks from any ponds... We have had a lot of rain this past week, there is a lot of water in many places.
Benefit to the garden and house.
This non poisonous snake will help keep the rodent population in check!
Orchard Spider and prey
The colors on the spiders body are so small I can only see them distinctly with a Macro lens,
Heart Shaped Pond is located on Hunt Road. A great fishing spot to take little kids.
Pickerelweed, Pontederia cordata
Butterly on Rose
Details of the head and neck...
This is a very small spider. The body is about 1/4 the size of a small pea.
This Orchard Spider (Leucauge venusta) has her web near our back door.
If she continues to capture "Love Bugs" I will leave her alone!
Growing beauty on the edge of Heart Shaped Pond
Keeping an eye on me, but swimming away, not towards me.
Lost part of a wing
This butterfly is still able to fly.
