I love this.
Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)
is it like a new pokemon or something… like Leaf/Bug??
Orienne Society (Herpetological Conservation):
"Coinciding with, finally, some milder south Georgia temperatures, this small Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) emerged from its mucky cocoon in a dry swamp and moved in search of water. (I do wish my colleagues cleaned up so well.) The kitten basket of small Spiny Softshells (Apalone spinifera), featuring both hatchlings and yearlings, were discovered buried in a sandbar of the Oconee River.”

Look Over By That Red Rock: With 415 million red rocks (by my actual count!) in Red Rock Canyon it could take awhile to find something if that were your only clue. The colorful rock formations are a mile up the Blue Creek Trail from the Homer Wilson Ranch in Big Bend NP. At top is a view toward the canyon through a window of the covered back porch to the ranch house (gear is not mine); beneath that is a cedar corral with the canyon in the background and at bottom is looking back toward the canyon and the Chisos Mts.
