I notice a bright green cocoon on the back of a dead plumeria leaf.   Crab Spider cocoon on plumeria leaf

 

 

Crab Spider in web  In October I took the only picture I have of a crab spider. I wish the details of the spider herself were more visible.

Macon is warm for this time of year. Yesterday I found plenty of great photo ops.

Tree frogs in elephant ear plant

Cold will soon be here. While cutting back the elephant ear plants, I find a couple of tree frogs enjoying the last of the sunny weather.

Tree frogs are common in this area. I still get excited to discover them!

After cutting back the large leaves of the elephant ear plant, I smell an unpleasant odor. Not wanting to step in poo, I scan the ground for the offending odor.

 

A Stinkhorn Mushroom

 

Instead of poo, I find a variety of a stinkhorn mushroom. The mushrooms excrete a stinkhorn slime for the attraction of flies.

After harassing the poor female praying mantis, I finish my pics for the day on a sweet note.
