Female Eastern pondhawk dragonfly on the boardwalk.
Ebony jewelwing damselfly near the creek.
One of the few damselflies with black wings. The male doesn't have white spots.
Grasshopper on the trail.
Tawny Emperor butterfly on a railing.
Question Mark butterfly. The white dot near the curved c on its wing identifies it.
Without the white dot, this would have been an Eastern Comma butterfly. Punctuation matters when identifying butterflies.
