These folks headed onto the trails
ten minutes before the SBFiN walk. 

























    Note the stratification of colors.


















 It's one of the jewelwings, genus Calopteryx and looks like maculata, female,
if maculata, the common name is Ebony Jewelwing.

Looks like woodland habitat which fits well. ~Don Miller






















































On our return trip along the trail, our photo friendly
Jewelwing shows its strength
by rolling up a leaf. Impressive!










Shadbark Hickory. Very nice specimen.


Can you see the spiny turtle face?







Dapple and filtered sunlight,
applies a spotlight
on this lovely flower.
