Pink color morph on a Round-wing Rattler Katydid- found at Killdeer Plains. The bright yellow botany? Birdfoot trefoil, Lotus corniculatus, a lovely non-native invader of wasteland and road edges.
Jim McCormac, taught the botany portion of the mini event, and here he describes the Michigan Lily, Lilium michiganense. Not only a great botanist, Jim does it all with birds, as the Division of Wildlife's Avian Educator and OOS president.
Gary Kennedy, displays a Blue Dasher dragonfly that became rather fond of Gary. With leaders the likes of Bob Glotzhober, Jim Davidson, Dave Horn, Bob Scott Placier, and Jim McCormac all the botany, butterflies, dragonflies and birds were well covered. Thanks to Rae Johnson and Jim for organizing this adventure!
