Today I’m pleased to bring you another post in our recurring series about the moments of nature we observe in our backyards and neighborhoods.
Over the weekend, our friend and veteran NCSU science newsman Matt Shipman took a barefooted step out onto his back porch to enjoy a little late summer fresh air and sunshine.
His leisurely afternoon stroll ended with an abrupt OW!
Strewn across Matt’s deck was an array of small, crunchy pellets. They were dry and hard and big enough to hurt the undersides of his feet.
