Jumping spider seen hanging out on my plumeria. Very colorful, the photo doesn’t do the iridescence justice. Most noticeable were a cluster of red dots on the carapace and some little whiskers behind the main eyes.

Poison Ivy Toxicodendron radicans

Description

I found this poison ivy patch in Waller Creek at the University of Texas at Austin. Poison ivy is incredibly abundant throughout the entirety of the US, especially in the south and the east coast. After some research, I learned that the rash caused by these plants is due to a compound called urushiol. While this causes painful rashes on humans, it's primary purpose is to help the plant retain water, which is incredibly beneficial in the state of Texas.

The moss was most likely on this fallen log because it's a well shaded area, which allows for the optimal environment of damp and cool that is best for moss growth.
