Nature Log

These are specimens that I have personally encountered in nature in my home state of Iowa. They are found at home in my back yard, at my outdoor job, out on a country road or even in town. I love finding (intentionally or accidently) new species that I have never seen or that are very rare. Some Items are very common--I think they deserve recognition too.
