Found him along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Almost stepped on him and thought he was dead until we saw him move his head. He made no attempt to slittther away and it looked like he had a horn sticking from the back of his head.
Once we got home and could look closer at the pics we saw that he’d molted over all of his body except his head. He didn’t try to get away because he couldn’t see us.
Turns out I won’t be doing these every day. It’s taking up more time than I’d expected and I still have a massive backlog of other things to take care of in the evening. I’ll be doing these as nature cooperates and time permits.
It’s been a busy year in a number of way which is why I haven’t been posting too many lab updates and tutorials.
I’ve got a number of tutorials in the pipeline and pictures that need taking but the next two weeks promise to be just as full so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to get to while I’ve got the time off my "day job." We’ll see though.
