A nature walk with my sister

I recently enjoyed a nature walk with my sister.  She shots some pics of the spring flora and fauna we saw.
The insects--
tiger beetle
little blue butterflies (spring azures?) drawing minerals from the mud

The fungi--
a little brownish gold mushroom and a couple more forming to the right
The flowers--
Carolina jessamine (or as the folks back home call it, jasmine)

loblolly pine


--so much interesting life all around.


  1. Very nice. Things are popping out all over.

  2. We are finally walking again, and things are pretty here on the Yadkin. We are seeing the results of the storms in the area from a couple years back. Seems this RV park has lost over half their trees. Probably the same year the storms hit you guys hard.
    Love the pictures. Great picture of the Tiger Beetle.

    1. I'm glad you are able to get out and about now.
      The tiger beetle was green one way and blue from another direction. The metallic color really does stand out.
      Half the trees down sounds like quite a devastation.
