6-1 Orange Hawkweed

Orange Hawkweed is opening a few flowers.
Common Speedwell is not far behind.
Among the many butterfly species emerging were Silver-spotted Skippers.
And Carrion Beetles (Nicrophorus orbicollis) were burying a chipmunk as food for their young by removing soil from beneath the carcass and letting it sink into the hole.
