Pale meadow beauties (we have these on the fringes of our yard, as well.)
There were lots of these common wood nymph butterflies around.
Charles pointed out this strange fungus.
One of many dragonflies.
The young golden orb weavers are already out (this one is about 2" long.) By October they'll be HUGE.
In one area we saw a few strange bugs covered with a sticky, soft, white material that came off easily when Charles touched them.
On the railing of the boardwalk I spotted this strange, little bug (possibly a monkey slug/hag moth larva.)
The yellow pitchers are starting to show their age. Some were so devoid of color they were virtually transparent.
Now that the heat & humidity here have driven temperatures over 100F on a daily basis, I suspect that hike will be our last for quite a while.
