    Yes it is. I was looking around walking by and Jessica spotted it and yelled. If I had been 10 feet to my left I would have walked over it. They only stay there for so long accessing the situation and then they move to safety. There is a little rush when you don't know they are there.

    Went other places looking today but did not walk far. Jessica was still weak from being sick.

    Down south is Tennessee they are much lighter then here and look very gold.I believe the darker color up here is an adaptation to a colder clime.The dark color allowing them to soak up solar radiation
