End of Summer Camp #2

The second session of summer camp at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest ended on Friday, but not before we made a few more discoveries!

1. Apparently, Caldy (camp counselor) is also a rockstar:

2. Female Golden Silk Orbweavers (Nephila clavipes) don't care for closeups:

3. Teenage White Ibis hang (Eudocimus albus) out at Goodson Lake at the end of the boardwalk:

4. Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Pterourus glaucus) caterpillars rest on a bed of silk:

5. The White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) antlers found along the low boardwalk during the event mapping activity look a great deal like the antler on the display table in the nature center:

6. Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) produces some funny-looking fruit that will eventually turn red:

7. We got some competition when it comes to documenting the fun, excitement, and nature at summer camp! Session #3 begins tomorrow!
