To See a World in a Grain of Sand and a Heaven in a Wildflower William Blake (1757–1827), Auguries of Innocence

  1. Pitcherplant Savanna at Sunset

    Tracy's Dewthreads (Drosera tracyi) glisten as the sun sets at one of our favorite pitcherplant savannas. The pitcherplants are a red form of the Yellow Pitcherplant (Sarracenia flava).

  2. Trout Lilies

    Trout lilies (Erythronium umbilicatum) cover several acres of some private land near Cairo, Georgia. It is believed to be the largest population of trout lilies in the southeastern United States.
    This spectacular scene of trout lilies came very close to being a memory when the landowner was preparing to develop the land. Fortunately, the landowner was co-operative in working with concerned citizens to arrange its purchase.

    These two luna moths on an oak tree had just emerged in March, the first brood of the season. The purple edges on the wings are pigment accumulated over the winter months. Later broods usually have yellow edges.

    The sticky glands of the spoonleaf are beautiful when viewed in this macro shot.

  28. Luna Moth Eyes
