Osprey. Photo by Wood County Parks volunteer Stu Kerr.
Podophyllum peltatum, the most fascinating spring forest plant I've seen so far with big white petals covered by a large umbrella-like leaf.
Legs appear to have stripes.
Is this A Fowler's toad?
found in vegetation/gravel next to man-made pond
Plants were getting a bit old, but some of the flowers were still looking good.
