9781535047371: Exploring the Undergrowth: Hiking a Trail at the Great Dismal Swamp

Explore wildlife photography as I wander down a trail at the Great Dismal Swamp. Learn about the brightly colored ailanthus webworm moth and its web-building larvae, the caterpillar. Marvel at the purple and fluorescent green eyes of the yellow deer fly. Notice the orchard orbweaver spider that sits in the center of its web, and the green meadow katydids and field grasshoppers resting on leaves, and spiders hiding on the underside of leaves, and leaf beetles devouring giant leaves. Find the crane fly hiding in the dark and the brightly colored leaf hoppers sitting out in the open. Inspect the wings of a gorgeous blue butterfly. See a scary tick waiting to catch a ride, a crab spider waiting for an insect to land too close, a brown leaf-footed bug and wheel bugs and a predatory wasp and trees and flowers and so much more. Learn how to develop and maintain a relationship with the other life forms that inhabit this planet. Listen as I speak of respecting their need to live while discovering how maximize our own pleasure. Hike with me as I explore the woods. And live the words of the Dalai Lama, “Because we all share this planet earth, we have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature.”
