The flowers were about 2 to 3 inches across and the stem had one flower per stem. The leaves were about an inch long and spaced about 3 to 4 inches apart. The plant itself was about 2 and a half feet high.
It was hidden in some tall grass along a lakeside trail at A Place to Play. At that time of the day, thou, (around 6 o'clock) the flower was closed up for the night. It also was growing naturally, so I couldn't pick it to get a better picture.
The male duck was following me around and then I saw the the mommy duck and her 11 babies. I suppose that he was defending his family. It is really cute. :3
This plant was about a foot and a half high. It smelled like black licorice. The leaves were string-like and all over the branches.
The flower was about an inch wide and was a purple/blueish color with dark purple stripes in the middle of petals; also with a yellow center. The flower was raised off the ground about a foot high.
It was about a forth of an inch long. They were crawling all over the sidewalk and there was about 15 to 20 of them within 5 feet of walking.
This middle-size bird caught my eye when I saw a flash of red from the corner of my eye. I know this is a Red-winged Blackbird because my kindergarden teacher taught us to identify these kind of bird along with King Fishers and house Sparrows.
These geese were swimming around with their babies and one was standing on the island with her babies.
2 inches wide and with a black center with a orange rim on the outside of the center. I am not sure if it is a native plant or not, thou.
The moth was about 3 to 4 inches from tip to tip, its body was about an inch and half big. It didn't flight away when I got close to it and it was daylight, too, maybe that's why. I stepped on a broken branch then, it flew up onto my shirt. I think it is a male because of it colors.
It was about a foot and half in height. It was next to a small creek, not directly in the water, thou. Leaves didn't start immediately from the ground, but started roughly about 6 to 7 inches.
5 to 6 inches long from head to tail. Found on a piece of lumber, laying in the sun. His belly was blue and he has long back claws or toes and longer than his front feet.
