For those of you who have been waiting, longing and pining for my next post. Here it is.
This is (as far as I can tell) the flower of a Carolina fanwort. Zoom in and you'll see the spiderling about to "balloon". A spiderling sends up a bit of spider silk, catches the wind and sails away to its new neighborhood. The spider species is ... uh ... I don't know, it's hard to tell with little ones.
As for why it's been so long, bummed-outted-ness. In a stupid accident, the drive with years of photos fell about three feet. Backups are sporadic due to lack of funds. Camera is failing, or lenses. Definite bummed-outted-ness. The data recovery is estimated to be between $800 and $900.
I'm still figuring out the whole emotional part of this event.
