I found this earthworm under a log at a park in Charlotte. It started to burrow down back into the dirt as soon as I removed the log. I took this picture around 1:00pm.
According to the Sun Journal, “Earthworms are often known to be workhorses in the garden, helping to aerate and fertilize the soil while filling it with nutrients. Earthworms recycle materials like dead leaves, decaying animals and feces so new plant seedlings can grow and have the process begin anew.” (http://www.sunjournal.com/news/2012-landscape-garden/2012/04/06/fun-facts-about-earthworms/1171408)
