It wasn't at all below 93 degrees while staying in #Arkansas this past week. A dip in the #KingsRiver was MUCH needed. ☀️🌊

Itsy bitsy baby #litterskink and a really neat #darksidedsalamander! #arkansas

More ARKANSAS FLORA!!! Here are a few unfamiliar trees I became acquainted with :) #BlackJackOak #quercusmarilandica; #ChinkapinOak #quercusmuhlenbergii; and #Sassafrass #sassafrassalbidum. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of the pines down there! Dang!

ARKANSAS FLORA!!!!!! Had such a great time down south exploring the rocky glades of the Ozark region! So much new flora to see!!! Most of these are characteristic of glades and rocky outcrops: #RoseGentian #CommonRosePink #sabatiaangularis; #Dollarleaf #desmodiumrotundifolium: #LongLeavedBluets #houstonialongifolia; #ScalyBlazingstar #liatrissquarrosa; #PastureHeliotrope #heliotropiumtenellum; #PencilFlower #stylosanthesbiflora; #ShrubbyStJohnsWort #hypericumprolificum; #StAndrewsCross #hypericumhypericoides

Headin' out of Illinois this Thursday >> #arkansas !!!

It's pretty hard to capture the very long inflorescence of #blackcohosh. It's such a beaut though. This rare plant is one of our tallest in the woodland. It's also state listed as endangered here in Illinois! 😯 stay safe friend. #cimicifugaracemosa #actaearacemosa

I don't know how to tell you and A. pachypoda apart when in flower, but damn if it's not instantly obvious when in fruit!!! The rare and majestic #RedBaneberry, at home in a rich, wet mesic woodland. #actaearubra
