The winner of the drawing for a prize from What Is It XXV was Mary from Indiana. She has a neat site with a lot of birds, butterflies and dragonflies to help with identification. Congrats to all the others who got the answer correct.
I took a trip to the Kent Bog yesterday. There have been a Black Bear spotted in the area of the bog and I decided to take a walk. It was confirmed by the Kent Police Department when responding to a call. I did take some photos while at the bog. Here is a Ruby Meadow-hawk that sat along the walkway.
This is a female Common Whitetail on the walkway.
Red Spotted Purple Admiral Butterfly that was in the bog. They are so dark I thought it was black.
