Rosy red cap fading toward margin. Pinkish stem, white gills with pink tinge. Growing on ground under conifers.
Brown bolete with dull pinkish/whitish pores, and brown reticulation on the yellowish-brown stem. Growing under white pine. I considered this to be T. felleus until I tasted it. It was not nearly as bitter as T. felleus, with light to medium bitterness developing over several seconds, instead of immediately strong as in T. felleus.
Red nymphs of the Large Milkweed Bug, clustered on a milkweek pod.

This spider is so tiny, it seemed like just a different spot of color on the wild carrot.
This fly seems out of proportion--the front of its body seems larger than the back. Feeding on wild carrot.
Orange vine twining around every plant in its vicinity.
This was a vine that was flowering prolifically. Though I didn't notice an odor of the flowers, there were many insects feeding. It was growing on a hillside with many other tall bushes and small trees. There is a spring that keeps the ground moist for most of the year.
Large, spiky fly with a dark maroon body and stiff black hairs. Feeding on Clematis virginiana.
I've seen this plant later in the fall, when the pod turns brown and opens and the silky white fluff shines in the sun. This was growing in a dry meadow.
Very small but complicated light pink flowers along a tall stem. Growing in partial shade in a dry meadow. Square stem, like mint, but there's a rotten smell along with the mint smell.
Growing in a dry, sunny meadow.
Pink flower on a very woody stalk.
Green hopping/flying insect that was almost invisible among the poplar leaves.

Insect with clear wings, and red legs, on Crown Vetch.
Insect with black and orange segments, with spikes along its back. I think this one is laying an egg.
