Three views of the White-banded Crab spider (Misumenoides formosipes). Anecdotal evidence suggests that individuals of this species assume the color of the flower onto which their eggs are deposited. Shades of white, yellow, cream and pink are common. The male (image 3) is about one third the size of the female. Their scientific name translates into "a hated one with beautiful legs". Go see if you can find one! #georgiawildlife #spiders #darlingtonschool

Here's another one of this little fella (or gal). Each time I'm out there with it just seems so magical. I been trying to get out there as often as I can so it gets use to me and therefore can get closer without spooking.

Within just a few weeks after a clearcut, vegetation begins to fill it in. Within a few months it will be thick with knee high brush. By next spring it will be grown up over your head before we site prep burn and replant that following fall. This stand will be replanted in #longleaf pine as part of our montane longleaf restoration project on Georgia public lands in partnership with several private organizations.

Golden silk orb weaver, some call them banana spiders, found at Chickasawhatchee WMA. This time of year they fill up the woods in central and south #Georgia. I haven't had one bite me yet despite the regular face first collisions. Anyone ever been bit by one?

Somebody come look at this! I can't go outside in the mornings without SOME giant creature at my door! I don't know if this is a really big spider or a facehugger from the movie Alien, but it's gotta go! Thanks again Georgia! Lol! #WTH #georgiawildlife #BigAssSpider #Alien

We had a few big #trees drop on Boggs Creek road during hurricane Irma. Moving this one took a while yesterday. I couldn't reach all the way to the middle of this tree with the tree core, but the rings counted more than 70 in the core, and that was only halfway into the tree. So, it was a good bit older than that! We couldn't get a slice of the main trunk to age it that way, we wouldn't have been able to move the trunk if we had.

"Mark of a New Existence" - The summer and fall months birth hundreds of cicada shells scattered through out the forest. These shells mark a new point in their lives where they can fly and call out to one another. They live underground for the majority of their lives as nymphs, feeding on the sap of tree roots. The annual cicadas (what is most likely in the picture) surface every 5-7 years, while the periodical cicadas can take 13 to 17 years. They submerge from the ground at night, in order to avoid predators. Their calls, one of the loudest produced in nature, are made via special membranes on their sides that vibrate. This sound is amplified by hollow regions in their bodies. When the males make these calls they disable their own hearing organs in order to avoid damage. I'd describe their call, weirdly, as if dimensions where collapsing on top of one another. After the female has mated she will make a slit in a branch, to deposit her eggs into. Once the eggs hatch the newborn nymphs fall to the ground and burrow into the soil to start the cycle all over again. #cicada #nature #naturephotography #cicadashell #summer #cicadasong #bug #bugs #insect #etymology #macro #forest #circleoflife #nymphs #wildlife #wildlifephotography #trees #summersounds #georgiawildlife #naturelovers #perception #dimensions #naturepic #giftsfromnature

INCREDIBLE. All roads in Big Canoe have been cleared from edge to edge. A standing ovation is in order for the tremendous efforts made by the men and woman of the Big Canoe Volunteer Fire Department, Big Canoe POA and everyone else that worked around the clock to monitor, survey and expedite this initial recovery process. Thank you to our property owners and guests for your patience, and for heeding safety precautions. What a Community!

Big Canoe took a solid hit from Hurricane Irma, but compared to our friends in Texas, Florida and beyond, we humbly count our blessings. We continue to keep everyone affected by these events in our thoughts and prayers.

Hearts a bustin, strawberry bush, etc. call it what you will, but the fruit of this plant is unmistakable in the late summer #Appalachian woods. The stems of this #plant are also square, which is a fairly unique feature.

So our guys just redid this road, put down gravel, and mowed back the brush. Then Irma said I'll show you and took out the trees and half the bank with them. Today we cleared out 2.5 miles of road by wet creek, Chestatee has a lot of storm damage. Yes our dirt really is that red here in #Georgia.

Story of today. Wilson Shoals #Wildlife Management Area was wrecked fairly bad. Several of our main roads were littered with downed trees, knocked over power lines, and debris. We're working hard to get them clean so you guys can go #deer hunt.

Out here assessing storm damage at our #wildlife management areas today. This #tree at one of the storage sheds fell in the best place it could have. Literally any other direction and it would have destroyed a shed, a tractor, or the fence shown here. Close call guys. Stay safe! Time to bust out the chainsaw 😊

Look at all those ferns. #Sheffield WMA experienced fire suppression for decades. Our biologists and technicians have worked slowly over the years to reduce the duff layer and expose the mineral soil through low intensity prescribed fire. Duff is the layer of decomposing organic matter like leaves. You have to do it slowly or you'll harm the feeder roots of the trees that are near the surface, eventually killing the tree itself. A hot #fire that burns off all the duff at once might kill them.

Ants often tend flocks of aphids to protect a ready supply of carbohydrates and protein. When a tiny aphid taps into a plant to drink sap, its anus acts as a pressure valve, releasing copious amounts of a sugary excretion known as honeydew. The ants chase away aphid predators (ladybugs, lacewings, etc) and often clip the wings of their livestock to maintain the flow of these sugar fountains. The ants also eat their aphids on occasion, culling the herd and satisfying their need for protein. Laboratory studies indicate that ants even resort to chemicals to boost honeydew production, including a tranquilizer exuded by ant feet that hinders aphid movement and a growth suppressant used to retard wing development in reproductive aphids. Ants are so sweet! #georgiawildlife #insects

Over a 50 to 100-year lifespan, Box turtles (Terrapene carolina) feed on a variety of invertebrates, fruits and fungi within areas only slightly larger than the average suburban yard. Males, with their red eyes and brightly colored skin, sometimes venture outside of their familiar surroundings in search of females. Studies have shown that if a male box turtle (like this one here) meets an amorous mate, she can store his genetic material for up to FOUR YEARS- fertilizing several consecutive clutches of eggs, even in years when no males are encountered. Let's help keep our box turtle "neighborhoods" intact by leaving turtles where we find them, and, only when its absolutely safe to pull over, by helping them across the road. #georgiawildlife #boxturtles #turtlecrossing

Big Canoe resident, Marcia Captan, went for a kayak ride on Lake Petit and had the most amazing encounter with these adorable triplet fawns and their momma. While the family cooled off along the shore and took some refreshing sips from the Lake, she was able to spend over half an hour just floating quietly nearby and enjoying the special moment with nature. Thank you for sharing your beautiful capture with us, Marcia! We don’t take these unique moments for granted, and know that they are one of the best parts of #canoelife.

Hey Mrs. Weevil, why the long face?  Pecan Weevils (Curculio caryae) use their elongated snout to chew deep into developing pecans, providing entrance holes for their larvae. The tiny grubs feed on the nut for weeks and leave through a tiny hole in the mature pecan.  #georgiawildlife #insects
