These hover flies were everywhere. Out of the three species that I saw this was by far the most prevalent. They were mostly found at rest on vegetation or nectaring on prairie fleabane.

I didn't think that there would be any frogs active at this time of year but I chanced upon this leopard frog while walking across a field. The sighting was between two marshy wetlands; a good 30 feet from either one.

Took a picture of this guy thinking it was a true bug, but not investigating because I was distracted by hover flies and hymenopterans. The picture may be too blurry for an ID
