In April, the Emiquon Corps of Discovery took a hike along Coal Creek looking for spring woodland flowers and butterflies.
I found a Red Admiral butterfly sunning his wings.
A Pearl Crescent butterfly displayed his upper wings nicely.
A Delaware Skipper sat out in the sun.
A Question Mark Butterfly rested on a fallen log.
We have had an early spring, and many flowers had already bloomed. However we did find a few flowers in the woods along the bluffs of Coal Creek, including this Purple Trillium.
On the way back I found a Silver-spotted Skipper.
