After The Storm

Blue Corporal
 A happy trail covered in daisies was fun to find. The water table was high, even on this hilltop and I got really wet walking around to enjoy this prairie in Lake Darling State Park. The park is named after Ding Darling who drew the design for the first duck stamp. I wondered how many proposals and honeymoons happened in the lovely area.

Duskywing


Amberwing, the smallest of dragonflies

The male Widow Maker has white on his wings, where the female doesn't.
Confused Eusarca is a moth that looks like a fallen leaf

This fungus looked like a bell
