Head's insects and one other

Hi Marie,

I've just read some chapters about insects in your book...they are indeed fascinating, and the metamorphosis process is really beyond words.

I was at Turtle Pond yesterday and photographed what appear to be wasps... and an escaped convict.

The Cardinal was photographed at the Maintenance Field...I've tossed him in for good measure as this one seem to have seen more than his share of insects.
