Summer Wildflower Identification, Second Field Trip

Again, With thanks to Melanie and all of the other students for putting up with the photographer!  
Here are the photos from the second field trip.

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)

Asiatic Dayflower


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

Silver-Spotted Skipper

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

Cinnabar Chanterelle?

A close up of Bee Balm

Bee Balm

Yellow Jewelweed

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.
