Very interesting find...like you said, I have never seen a wild Gila monster picture, always captive reptiles. I think it a great picture, very hot and deserty looking (is that a word?) It`s way to hot here to take pictures...I always get sweat on my Camera when it is this hot.

Golden Tortoise Beetle Larvae

This is the larvae of the Golden Tortoise Beetle- Charidotella sexpunctata . Found him on my Morning Glory Vines, which they like to attack.

Well Ken, I thought maybe you found the cure for "HAIR LOSS" with the second picture. :lol: (I could have used that). I guess the mushroom is having a bad hair day. Excellent photos Ken, and thank you for the great info on the mushrooms.

I always wanted to grow orchids but never had any room to do it. Thats when I found out about miniature orchids. These are not bred to be small, they are this way in nature. They run about $18 to $20 and they fit very nicly in my old fish tank :D

A Miniature orchid bloom

Here is a picture of one of my Miniature orchids... Haraella odorata from Taiwan. The flower is a little less than 2cm long and the whole plant is roughly 6cm wide. This plant has not stopped blooming since I bought it in April 2005. It is a stick mounted plant (no pot). http://www.photomacrography1...
