Some of the library staff visited the Cahaba River today to see the Cahaba Lilies that are now in bloom. Below are three pictures taken by Joel Bullock. The first two are of the lilies, the third is of a caterpillar/butterfly (or maybe it's a caterpillar/moth?) out of its cocoon, which we saw on our hike back to the car.
Here's a link to the pdf announcement for the Cahaba Lily Festival.
