What's Out There?

Today was a busy day "at work" = ZOOM meetings, so I took a neighborhood walk in the late afternoon. I've been gradually and semi-methodically "mapping" my neighborhood on iNaturalist. Today I chose a busy local road - Crystal Springs Road - and took the side of the street that lacks a sidewalk. In a mere 45 minutes and a.3 of a mile, with 31 observations, I was able to document 9 of the 13 iNat categories - Mammal, Bird, Amphibian, Insect, Spiders, Mollusks, Other Animals, Plants, and Fungi. I feel certain there was a Slime Mold out there, but I couldn't find one to document. But I felt that this rather unremarkable voyage justified my neighborhood walk practice, all by itself! I've provided a sample of some of the more intriguing observations along my short walk.
