It's another rainy day in Georgia. I know we need the rain but it'll just makes the grass at the observatory grow. A friend stopped by the observatory last week just prior to an outreach event, looked around and said "you have to much grass." Don't I know it. But he did help me cut the grass for which I was very thankful.
Linda said I misspelled the name of the 'little cmperor orchid' last week. I showed her the tag that came with it and she said "you copied a misspelled name." Oh well. There is a 'little emperor orchid' so I guess that's the correct name. Can't get away without having everything fact checked these days. Actually, I appreciate people correcting something I've mislabeled.
I have two photos today. The first is a black widow. It and about ten others were living in my well cover. Here I thought they were solitary critters. Not that it's a big problem, I've sampled wells for decades and have found everything from a child hiding from his mother to a coral snake in well houses and covers. The most common thing found were wasp nests. The second photo is of an Iris. I love photographing these flowers.
