The Woods: Animal Edition
I was about to put flagging tape on this sapling when I saw this snake! I’d seen his relative a few miles away earlier in the day and was surprised to see another one. I think it is a rough green, Opheodrys aestivus. I only had my point and shoot for work, not my good one so it was a bit difficult to get a good shot.
I haven’t had any luck identifying this hornworm, but it was a fat, cute and squishy and needed its photo taken.
The Mr. and Mrs. getting ready for dinner. The Mr. is the smaller one, by the way.
A spiny oakworm caterpillar, Anisota stigma. I found a good website for identifying caterpillars, a key of sorts, Discoverlife.org key.
An imperial moth larvae, Eacles imperialis, but it was dead. Chris got the green phase of this moth here.
Not an animal, but pretty cool, paw paw fruit/seeds. Not sure on the particular species.
I’ve seen a few deer lately and armadillo but that’s it in the way of animals.
Those spiders are CREEPY!!!!
Cool!!! I don’t like the snakes and spiders but they are good pictures.
