  • Squirrel (heard and seen)
  • Grasshopper with yellow wings
  • Baby aspen

  • Green pine cone

 

  • Million blue dragon flies
  • Water boatman
  • Water striders
  • 25 green frogs

  • Purple dragonfly wings
  • Bee yellow jacket
  • Wasp nest

  • Wasp
  • Squirrel or chipmunk signs
  • Dark green and light green moss
  • Lichen
  • Baby water strider
  • Beaver cut trees (repeatedly described by Nate as a "skilled beaver cut")
  • Orange lichen
