The temperature was pushing 90 degrees today and the humidity was high. I was hoping to find more butterflies but there was not much activity by either insects or birds. There were the usual Common Darter Dragonflies - they seem to be as abundant an Cabbage White butterflies.
I did spot this giant grasshopper in a little clearing beside the trail. I wanted to stay with it and get more photos but the flies and bees buzzing around me were just too annoying. And the sun was beating down from a mostly clear sky.
