Comments: Black widows, wasps, and cactuses near San Nicolás


Originally we wanted to go to El Limón Totalco today, but because we both got up late, we would arrive too late, so I thought up a new destination more nearby. When we visited Otates last year, we passed through a town that had attractive surroundings. But I couldn't come up with the name.

very interesting, that wasp nest must have been scary to have seen.

Great site. The plant identified as a succulent is a Hechtia sp. They're primitive, terrestrial bromeliads, i.e., members of the pineapple family.

Craig, many thanks! I have fixed the error, and thanks for the additional information. I love to learn the proper names of what I see.

If you like Black Widows... you might enjoy this funny video.

I have about a dozen Widow "pets" and have a great deal of very interesting raw video that I'll get around to uploading some day.
