What in Tarnation is That?

I thought it would be fun to play a game. I have cropped a few of my photos, and will let you all take a stab at what they are. Everything is nature related and can be found outside here in the Midwest, so no kangaroos, octopus, etc... I will post the answers and show the original photos in a couple days. Good luck!

  1. I'll give it a try:
    1 Halloween Pennant dragonfly
    2 Asclepias flower
    3 mussel shell?
    4 Rosy Maple moth
    5 Yellow Warbler
    6 Shooting Star
    7 Eggs?

  2. 1 is a dragonfly, 4 and 5 butterflies??

  3. Fun photo quiz! I'll take a stab...
    1) Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina)
    2) Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
    3) Eyed Click Beetle (Alaus oculatus)
    4) Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda)
    5) You've got me... maybe a honeybee (Apis sp.)?
    6) Pride of Ohio(!) (Dodecatheon meadia)
    7) American Robin? eggs (Turdus migratorius)

  4. Good guesses everyone! Everyone got at least a few right, with Scott getting most of them.

  5. The game was a lot of fun! Thanks Janet!
