Recently, while camping, we discovered this huge caterpillar. It is America’s largest caterpillar, and it’s name is Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar. It is docile, and harmless, but looks pretty wicked. It produces the Regal Moth.

As much as we know about the world and science, we still do not know everything. My favorite new discovery is this glow-in-the-dark cockroach. It reminds me of a Jawa from Star Wars. The Lesula monkey with human-like face is pretty cool too. There is so much in the world to take photos of!

I could not resist taking this photo because I have never seen the two so close together. Is the gator a friend or waiting for supper? Only he knows.

These baby mockingbirds are in an orange tree with plenty of thorns. I doubt anything will ever eat them, as I have watched the mother, and father return every year to the same nesting location. I had to be quite careful not to get cut on thorns to get this macro photo.
