Summer Photo Walk, July 27

Today’s photo walk occurred at McLean Teddy Bear Park, which is a short drive east of Lima and full of delightful flora. The forest looks a bit different this year because we’ve had so much rain. Usually there’s sporadic orange jewelweed along the short forest trail at the height of summer, but today I saw long puffs of that wildflower that rivaled a small hedge in stature:

I also spotted a few of a wildflower that I hadn’t seen before in the forest, and I’m not sure what it’s called:

There are many pawpaw trees throughout this park’s forested areas, and noticed that one of the trees I passed had fruit on it:

The prairie was also lush with yellow wildflowers like prairie dock and oxeye sunflowers. I’m pleased that I saw a few butterflies flitting about and was able to get a picture of one of the monarch butterflies.
