Bugs, Bugs, and Maybe a Flower

Ouch, it’s almost midnight, so I better put something up soon. I’ve been going through my photos and trying to get some sort of identification on some of the insects and flowers I saw. I’m no naturalist, so if I’ve misidentified anything, please let me know.

Agalinis acuta, also known as Sandplain Gerardia, is a rare flower.

One of the many little brownish skippers. I find them hard to identify, but I have tentative identified this one as a Zabulon Skipper.

I got so many photos, so I guess I might as well stop here. If you want to see more, I just posted some others on my French language blog.

      Thanks. I take photos and look them up afterwards. The only one above that I identified at that time was the Pearl Crescent butterfly, and that’s just because some people on BugGuide.net helped me out with that a couple of weeks ago. I knew that the Red-banded Hairstreak was a Hairstreak, but we have thirty of those in Maryland.
