    Not my home, but on a weekend trip to the NC mountains. 


    Wow!  All three are beautiful.

    Pure luck that I had my phone with me to get that shot. The bush had about 20 of them, but those were the only ones that cooperated by staying still.

    Not sure what kind of spider it is, maybe a small orb weaver?  Never seen one just like it before.  It would just hold its legs out like it was waiting to grab a passerby :)

    My bee hotel.  
    I am a fan of the Nasturtiums as well :). I recently started growing them in my garden and wish I had been for years!

    I’ve heard that every part of them is edible, but haven’t tried them yet.  Just using them to keep the aphids controlled so far, but that looks tasty!

  • They taste of pepper and are wonderful in salad. I ate the flower only.

    Lovely pictures Rob.  I particularly love the sheep and the bee hotel ones.  They brought the biggest smile to my face.  Thank you.

    and @PJPOWER I love the spider on the flower picture.  Both are so beautiful.

    This is a photo of a Water Moccasin a/k/a Cotton Mouth.  It is poisonous.  This was taken last October on "Snake Road."  It is a road in Southern Illinois in Shawnee National Forest that lies between the Mississippi bottom lands and a rock bluff.  In the Fall reptiles migrate from the slough (swamp) to the bluffs to hibernate.  In the Spring they leave the bluffs and head to the sloughs.  The Forest Service closes the road during these times to allow the reptiles to migrate safely.  You can walk the road but you can't drive on it.  It has become a very popular spot for wildlife observers and wildlife experts because of the diversity of reptiles here.  I will post a link below if I can figure out how to do it with the photo already posted.  http://www.reptilesmagazine.com/9-Days-On-Shawnee-National-Forests-Snake-Road-Of-Illinois/     I have yet to see the two species of Rattlesnakes here.  Hopefully on the next trip.

    ^^^ That is awesome.  Love to hear about the proactive steps that are taken to protect and preserve the natural fauna.
