Yup, still working the backlog. I’m in May now.
Here’s an egg I found right next to the trail.
Based on size and surface decoration, it’s a wild turkey egg, which I only know because I found a pile of them a couple years ago and asked somebody at the MDC what they were. This one was entire, but there was no one inside.
It was there a week later too, which surprised me.
I caught a Jack-in-the-pulpit leaf in the act of unfurling (above).
Couldn't even guess what these mushrooms are, but I like what they’re doing.
Found this ornate box turtle right on the trail, eating a worm with such vigor that he didn’t even notice me right off!
Tried to get some shots of his beautiful spotted front legs, but by then he was having none of me. Too bad, because he was wet with rain, and the colors were extra-vibrant.
Puffballs in the setting sun.
