Three Nature Stops

Good naturing today!  It's always fun to see something new and different!

1.  Breakneck Hill Conservation Land - Southboro:

American Crow

Assassin Bug with its kill
and an ant trying to get in on the action (why?)

I don't see Assassin Bugs very often, so this was an exciting sighting!  It's a beauty of an insect!

Viceroy caterpillar

I have never seen this before!  It is camouflaged in a way that makes it predators mistake it for bird poop.  Pretty neat, huh?

Crane Flies (mating)

possible Monarch egg!

gorgeous ferns

Little Wood Satyr

Ruby Meadowhawk

Indigo Bunting

Indigo Bunting (either female or juvenile)

2.  Hopkinton State Park, Hopkinton:

3.  Wildwood Cemetery, Ashland:
