I chased some more insects today.
This tawny-edged skipper, Polites themistocles, was spending time around a mud puddle, but perched on a small weed briefly.
The northern pearly-eye, Enodia anthedon, emerged from a shady area along the path and sought out some wet clay.
Six-spotted tiger beetles, Cicindela sexguttata, are named for the six small white spots found on their dorsal surface. This is a widespread species, and the individuals found in this part of Iowa almost never have the white spots. It takes a lot of patience and luck to sneak up on these close enough to get a good picture. I have done it in the past, but I was not able to today.
