Camp Snyder Nature Hike

At Camp Snyder, we took a pretty cool nature hike through an open meadow and small woodsy area. We saw many cool plants and animals. Some I caught on camera, like those below, and some I only saw, but couldn't get a photo of (like the cool Indigo Bunting, the first I've ever seen!).


Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota)

Teasel (Dipsacus fullonum)

Swamp Milkweed fruit (Asclepias incarnata)

New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae)

Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata)

Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron annuus)

Goldenrod (Solidago sp.)

Honeybee

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) on Bull Thistle (Cirsium vulgare)

Crown Vetch (Securigera varia)

Blackberry (Rubus sp.)

Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta)

Tall Ironweed (Vernonia gigantea)


Small human children (Homo sapiens)

Poison Ivy! (Toxicodendron radicans)

Pokeweed (Phytolacca americana)

Great pictures. I recognize a lot of your wild flowers as the same as we sw on our hike thru the prairie farm meadow. Our milkweed does look differnt than the southern swamp milkweed. It looks more like what we had in OK. It sounds like you all had a great time at camp.
