photographing and learning about wildlife
I live in the Natural State, with many lakes, state/national parks, and trails in the surrounding areas, and study it all as a life hobby.
I'm pretty sure you both are right. I dismissed them when I first saw them because the pictures I'd seen, the cracking and peeling was so varied and the patches were smaller, but I'd wager it was peeling so uniform because of the moisture--it'd been raining in that area for days before I found it. Thank you so much for the information!
Thank you! I felt like there had to be something out there I was missing, even with the Blue Dasher Western varient. It still didn't feel quite right. About to head out to work but I will get this (and several others) updated asap when I'm home later!
