Here are some great photos taken from the field by our own Angie Carl, she has such a good eye for things.
This was (I say was because right after this photo was shot the fort came down) an illegal fort built on NC Natural Heritage land that we manage in Boiling Spring Lakes, NC. What an effort! Whoever built the fort also started a fire that was left unattended, could have been disastrous. Pictured is AJ one of our UNCW interns.
This crazy beautiful flower is called lantana. Some of you may have it growing in your yard at home. It is a non-native species from Australia. I love how it has clusters of multi-colored flowers on the same plant. It was also taken at the White Marsh easement.
The last is a cute butterfly on a flower that is unidentified although I suspect it might be deer tongue. Any other educated guesses greatly welcome firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for looking!!
