Yes, I've seen them in yellow before. The white coloration was new to me--and, of course, the scientific name.

I guess the venom would have to be strong to overcome something so big.

He is hilarious, isn't he? This is a great forum. Are you the same Equilibrium who posts photos on Dave's garden? Some of the photos are great. I'm trying to pick plants for my garden to plant this fall so I've been checking images a lot, and yours keep cropping up. And I enjoy reading foxy dapjwy's posts, too!

Thank you. ~smile~

This really is a great group. We all seem to really appreciate each other.

...since becoming a fox, I've been wondering where to see the list starting with carbon and going to what. It seems to me "bug whisperer and "official veggie killer" are not on the list...you all must have so much fun with that!

Did you find the two areas that have avatars for use and signature line suggestions yet?

Did you notice I evolved? I need to google lungwort, since I'm not sure what one is, but it has to be better than a unicellular fungi.
