Default Some little'uns and young'uns

Just some random shots from along the trail this past week - mostly details and new things...

Our native rose species - Carolina Rose, just started blooming - and all the pollen-eaters are happy!

Hot and damp is perfect for fungus. This (I think it's a Chanterelle) was full of color one day, and already fading and eaten up the next!

More of our native orchids are coming into bloom. This is one of the commonest, but sure is interesting looking - can you see why it's called Ragged Fringed Orchid?

Milkweeds also have come into bloom, and are full of butterflies. This little Banded Hairstreak was patient enough to coax onto my (very sweaty) fingertip (probably enjoying licking up the salt).

So many folks have shared their amazing Dragonfly and Damselfly photos lately. Perhaps you haven't seen what their young'uns look like. Here are the nymphs of a dragonfly (one of the clubtails I think), and a damselfly (probably Ebony Jewelwing).

Speaking of dragonflies, have been trying to improve DIF technique lately. This Prince Baskettail was pretty cooperative for the impatient photographer...

Out with a group on the trail recently, and one of the sharp-eyed children noticed this little'un curled up beside the trail. It was hard to keep all the group quiet, and far enough away...

Hope you enjoyed these rather random views of spring turning to summer, and hope your new season is progressing well too!

Thanks for any comments, critique, or suggestions!
