It's off to Charlotte again today. But this time it is a quick trip and I am not going solo. We are heading back home tomorrow with family in tow, so I doubt I will have much time to blog in the coming week. I thought I would leave you with a few pictures featuring my favorite color, green.
Good thing frogs aren't sensitive to poison ivy or this green treefrog (Hyla cinerea) would be itchy in all the wrong places.
In this "before" picture, a Cabbage White caterpillar (Pieris rapae) seems to be enjoying the broccoli in our garden. While we don't use pesticides, we aren't adverse to pinching the heads off poachers! I'll spare you the "after" picture.
A Northern Rough Green Snake (Opheodrys aestivus aestivus) just hanging out in a high bush blueberry. I have never had a green snake even attempt to bite me, but every one I have ever caught has treated me to a foul-smelling spray from its anal vent.
