Descripción

Indian pipe (Monotropa uniflora) underneath the mountain laurels along the Bluff Ridge Trail. This plant is a mycoheterotroph that taps into the mycorrhizae of other plants for nutrition. I often find it in the vicinity of rhododendrons, or in this case mountain laurel, suggesting that it associates with mycorrhizae of ericaceous plants.

Spider on smartweed. Sneaky little thing is sitting in wait for pollinators. Given that the bud still has to open, it may be in for a little bit of a wait.

Meadow full of Liatris spicata at Doughton Park on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We met a ranger up there who indicated that this area was actively managed as a wildflower meadow and seeds may have been scattered in the past to get it going.

Field thistle (Cirsium discolor) with tiger swallowtail (Papilio glaucus), black swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes) and a pipevine swallowtail (Battus philenor) flying in. Thistles were mostly found along the part of the trail crossing a cow pasture, suggesting that cattle will chomp down almost everything else but don't like the prickly thistles.

Descripción

Siebenpunkt (Coccinella septempunctata) - literally means "seven spots" in German and that's how many this ladybug has, three and a half on each wing. Very easy to recognize and always remind me of my childhood in Germany as these are the most common European ladybug. They were introduced to the US along with Asian ladybugs for pest control, primarily targeting aphids.

I'm not sure about the species here but think it's an aster and thought the mottled pattern on the leaves looked interesting. I doubt it is a characteristic of this species and probably just a symptom of some type of nutrient deficiency.

The red-and-green mottled berries of Solomon's plume (Maianthemum racemosum aka Smilacina racemosa in older books). In some places, the berries will turn entirely red, but I mostly find these mottled ones. Apparently soil pH has an effect on the fruit color when ripe.
