These are not as good as the first field trip mainly because the light in the fields for the first field trip was so great! This field trip hit many shady spots with difficult light.
Variegated Fritillary chrysalis
Naked Tick Trefoil
The Red-Spotted Purple is magnificent if it catches the light just right.
The underside of the Red-Spotted Purple's wing.
Self-Heal (or Heal-All)
Everytime I tried to photograph this fly the flash made it jump off the leaf before the shutter captured it - that's quite a good reaction time.
Ivy-Leaved Morning Glory
Downy Rattlesnake Plantain - there is a tiny fly pollinating this little orchid (it has its head in a flower on the right, its wings reflected the flash).
Dwarf St. Johnswort
Boneset, with three leaves?
As yet unidentified caterpillar
St. Andrew's Cross
A close up of Bee Balm
Queen Anne's Lace
If I had the time I would have gone back the next day with a tripod.
I hope the rest of you enjoyed the class as much as we did.
