    I managed to catch this little guy in less than a minute.

    Q6241824 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    It turns out that it's the common sidewalk tiger beetle, not the pine barrens tiger.

    Check out the jaws.

    And then we found this big girl! She's a red bellied turtle, which is not commonly seen due to its reclusive nature and limited range. We saw her crossing the road, stopped to grab her and save her from traffic, and she started to not just sprint, but gallop away. She stopped after she realized we were going to catch her. To give her an idea of her size, I'm 5'6" tall.

    The flower spike of the Surry county D. intermedia. These plants are proving to be very different from the run of the mill intermedias.

    Toothache grass in flower. Awesome plant! If you chew enough flowers or seed your jaw will go numb and you start drooling uncontrollably. I want to try it with a horse.

    Yup, we do it annually. The next upload is going to be a depressing one, just to give fair warning.

    ---------- Post added at 10:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:49 PM ----------

    Here's the visit to the largest, scratch that, used to be the largest Sarracenia population in Virginia.

    Introduced sundews.

    Q7051995 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    An odd sundew flower with tentacles on the petals.

    Q7051997 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    One of the purps on the maintenance trail.

    Q7051998 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    Q7052000 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    And now the depressing part. 60% of the purps on this site are now dead. Despite a clearly printed sign on the border of the bog reading "Sensative vegetation area. Do not spray." It was nuked anyways. Here's the damage. This bog is on a power line. SOmeone has some explaining to do.

    Feeling the edge effect. Dying slowly.

    Even the sundews are suffering.

    The seedlings were safe, somehow.

    And here's the site.

    All of those flowers, and potential seedlings, dead.
