Thanks for the ID confirmation, luteum! I really appreciate it!
The are awesome, indeed. I hope to get back to Tennessee one of these days.
Thanks, metulippatch. This is one of my many favorites. When I see these in bloom, I know spring is on the way.
Happy to help, ForestDragon. I hope to spot this myself one of these days!
Definitely crazy eyes. This is the only time I've seen a mayfly like this. If the bladdernut hadn't been in bloom, I'd have missed it.
So many flowers in the rose family look the same to me. Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, multiflora roses... I definitely need other plant parts to make a reliable ID.
What a pretty spider!
It's something in the mustard family. I wouldn't be surprised if it has "cress" as part of it's name. Early winter cress, for example, is in bloom now.
If the three-lobed toothed leaves in the background are part of the plant, it looks like Virginia strawberry, Fragaria virginiana.
