|Red Drum - RedFish|
After finally tiring it out and bringing it in I held a solid mass of fish that took my breath away. It was my first redfish and at that moment I finally realized what all the hype was about. The Red Drum truly is a top sport fish for all coastal anglers.
After the backdrop is dried I then got to work on the red drum.
About the size of quarter, this 'Spotted Orb Spider' usually lives in heavily wooded areas and weaves a strong web about two foot across. Due to its size one might think that it would be deadly to about any insect but unfortunately its greatest enemy is the paper wasp. Although rather creepy looking it is not poisonous to humans so in this case I would take the spider over the wasp.
And that's your nature lesson for the day. Enjoy the rest of your week.
