  1. Nice series of photos, though I wonder if you could use them for a children's counting book or if some parents might object.

    I just purchased a telephoto lens so next time I'm up I've gotta get a photo of their wild mating. Those crazy kids!

  5. Kinky! It's been so cold here in the northern Piedmont that we've had to postpone our spring Peeper Walk three times--the peepers are still hibernating! Easter Sunday and Monday are supposed to be near 60, though. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

  8. Very horseshoe crab-ish! Those creatures love their orgies...

  9. I think these must be a good sign about the health of the ecosystem there, right?
    Feeling depressed about the state of honeybees and the contribution of GMO's to their demise... nice to see some good "news."
    Miss you guys, will try to stop by more often!
