one of the first critters seen was a Northern Crescent. I'm just starting to see them out at this time.
A nice Monarch was sipping from a common milkweed...and hopefully laying eggs. A milkweed beetle. A potato beetle...hopefully soon to be known as Guinea food!
We passed a few Black-eyed Susans along the way...Then under the Shagbark Hickory getting heavy with nuts... Ole found this little guy, who was probably looking for nuts... Then to the pond...which is completely dry but still full of life and little frogs...many plants, which I don't know... A White-faced Meadowhawk.
