I spent about 2 1/2 hours hiking at Little Black Lake before I got rained out. It is amazing what you can find if you take the time to look.
Flowers: Blue Vervain, Joe-Pye Weed, White Water Lily, Pickerelweed and Black-eyed Susan. Others I couldn't identify.
Dragonflies: Halloween Pennant, Blue Dasher, Eastern Pondhawk, Common Green Darner, Widow Sr, Spangled Skimmer and Twelve-spotted Skimmer.
Butterflies: Black Swallowtail, Spicebush Swallowtail, Least Skipper, Common Buckeye, Viceroy, Monarch, Cabbage White, Clouded Sulphur, and Orange Sulphur.
Birds: Red-tailed Hawk, American Crow, Blue Jay, Barn Swallow, Tufted Titmouse, Yellow Warbler, American Robin and Song Sparrow.
It was a fun walk.
