Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

I found this Hackberry Emperor butterfly, Asterocampa celtis, family Nymphalidae, or the Brushfoots taking shelter from the rain (as were we) under the eaves of the visitor center at Afton State Park. It's a butterfly that rarely feeds on nectar from flowers. instead it feeds on animal dung, rotten fruit, and sap flows.
