GHOSTS & LEGS
Season for Some Revisiting
We’re well into Summer, sometimes the weather is really inviting, and there are some pretty amazing things to see in the woods.
Ghost Plant (Monotropa uniflora) are flowering here and there, so keep an eye out for their ghostly look.
Another creature seen this time of year is the yellow-spotted millipede.
See below for more. Click on a photo to see it larger.
