This is just for fun. Try to guess what each one is. If you click the picture of the detail it will open a picture of the whole item. There are comments about each at the end of the whole post.
The first picture is of a red jelly fungus... or maybe a slime mold. I have to do some more research. Since I love slime molds, I hope it is one of those, but it looks too smooth.
Next is a lovely box turtle that was not shy at all!
The third one is a North American millipede, Narceus americanus, sometimes called the eastern red-ribbed millipede. They make nice pets.
I hope you weren't disturbed at the condition of the bird the feathers were from. I may do a whole post about it just because they aren't seen too often. It's a woodcock!
Finally, there is a seed pod of the trumpet vine, which has flamboyant red trumpet flowers earlier in the summer.
I hope this was fun.
