We started our time at Douthat State Park with a nature-themed scavenger hunt

Critters of the Day

A green frog in the vernal pool at Douthat State Park.

Sadly, "Shellie" the female box turtle we saw at the vernal pool two weeks ago had died recently -- identified by comparison with shell markings on photographs from that trip. Her decomposition was assisted by beetles and flies; two Eastern Swallowtail Butterflies were also attracted to the remains.
