Anyway, after expressing my wishes, darling husband and darling son capitulated and went for a walk with me Saturday evening at the local nature preserve. Darling husband had to coax darling son since darling son had been standing and playing music for a few hours that afternoon, but once darling son got to the nature preserve, he was quite the interested companion, and he snapped several photos with his phone. Here are some of ds's photos.
A pickerel frog by the base of a tree.
Double-banded scoliid on white snakeroot flower.
Virginia meadow beauty (rhexia virginica) by the edge of the lake.
