Random Pictures
This fly is about 5/8" long.  The body shape reminds me of a crane fly, but I have looked at pictures of hundreds of flies and not found anything like this.  So I called it a fen fly, because that is where one landed on me, in a fen.
The same fen where I found the pond monster.  Maybe the monster is the larval stage of this fly.

Gugguide.com ID'd the fly.  It turns out that the larva of this fly is a parasite that lives on the larva of wasps or hornets that burrow into the ground to lay their eggs.

Also called Trout Lilly.
The other flower is Carolina Spring Beauty.

This is a cousin to the Puccoon previously shown.  It likes to live in the Straits area.  This was found in a hidden clearing near where Babcock's lived on the North Shore.
It appears that a few of the flowers have matured to the point where the petals have been detached.
