Miracles of Nature

A dew dropped spider's web

Shells we found by the Maury River

And this spectacular treasure that Joshua found on a walk with Tucker. An insect eaten Chinese lantern with the seed still enclosed in the fragile shell.

I am not including the photograph of the neon orange caterpillar that Joshua found on this same walk, as I do not want to lose our new readership. It was an amazing specimen and I immediately gave it a home on a twig in our living room. Imagine our horror when we awoke the next morning to find it covered in wriggling white parasites! Alas, I did not take a picture of it before the infestation, only after. It is rather repulsive. Ella would not approve of it on her blog.
