Cherokee Rose (Rosa laevigata)

Legend of the Cherokee Rose(nu na hi du na tlo hi lu i)

When gold was discovered in the state of Georgia the Federal Government, ignoring it's treaty with the Cherokee People, relocated them into Oklahoma. A quarter of them died during the journey West. In 1838 the route taken was named "The Trail of Tears" because the mothers, unable to save their children, shed many tears of unthinkable sorrow. The elders prayed for a sign from above to help the mothers in their time of grief. GOD, looking down on the plight of the Cherokee People, caused a stone in the shape of a flower to form where every tear had fallen. The next morning a beautiful white rose sprang forth from each stone. The white represents the tears of sorrow that were shed, the gold center represents the gold stolen from the Cherokee lands and the seven leaves on each stem represents the seven clans of the Cherokee Nation.

Crab Spider (Flower Spider)

Crab Spiders are most often found in flowers waiting to ambush their prey. They do not build webs but are active hunters. The name "Crab" was given to them because of the resemblance of their first set of legs to a crabs. Also they move sidesways and bacward more easily than forward.

Honey Bee (Disambiguation)

So named for it's ability to produce honey.

So you guys still have honeybees around. We haven't even seen in around here in a while.

Great action shot! (I still feel sorry for the bee.)
