Searching for Something

I went to Christiansen Forest Preserve with my camera today.  It was humid and cloudy, and seemed ready to rain.  It seemed a little too cloudy for butterflies, but I was hoping that I find something that inspired me a little.

This harvestman was walking along a leaf.  It was kind of cute, but it wandered off rapidly before I could get many photos.

I also did not get a good look at this tiny beetle.

There were some unusual looking mushrooms along the trail.


I did see one butterfly–this red admiral landed along the trail and allowed me to get close enough to get a picture.

I wasn’t out long–less than an hour.  It was starting to sprinkle by the time I quit.  I am not sure what I was looking for, and I don’t think I found it.  But I might have been close.
