This is a growing photo reference page for critters, wildlife, plants and anything else that may be uncommon, regional or unusual appearing in my stories, that I can find a photo of to share with you. A “picture is worth a thousand words” kind of thing, especially for younger folks. If a reader may not know what a Queen Anne’s Lace, Bloodroot, Hedge Apple or Nine-banded Armadillo looks like, chances are we may have a picture of one here for them to check it out and learn from. So always keep checking back as the collection continues to grow.
