Identification project

A couple weeks ago, I posted a slideshow of digital "specimens" from our afternoon at Shaw Nature Reserve. Today, the older children and I spent quite a while going through and identifying those specimens. We used books and the internet, and got almost everything identified. I was surprised at how much fun it was, and I think the kids enjoyed it as well. Some of our findings were quite surprising... learning about the Kentucky Coffee tree, for one!

Here's the slideshow again, with updated captions:
