Brian Parsons Potentila sp.
Potentila sp. commented on by Brian Parsons Colorado, USA7 years ago

Definitely a Potentilla species (Cinquefoil)- without more images it is hard to say which

One of the Bluets, genus Enallagma. It is a Damselfy

This is a Spring Beauty - genus Claytonia. I don't know your flora so I won't guess at the species.

Brian Parsons Yellow Iris

Definitely an Iris, not an Orchid

Consider Limber Honeysuckle, Lonicera diocia for your ID

Lonicera sempervirens isn't known from Michigan and has completely different flowers

Cool Vine - typically grown as an annual in NE US, also called Spanish Flag. Old name is Mina lobata and now is called Ipomoea lobata

You can tell this is a Question Mark by the white markings on wings

Sarcoscypha austriaca would be my guess

Brian Parsons Banded Demoiselle
Banded Demoiselle commented on by Brian Parsons Trafford, England, United Kingdom8 years ago

Not sure about your damselflies, but maybe it is this species: Banded Demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens)

Unknown spotting commented on by Brian Parsons Tennessee, USA8 years ago

Not a Sourwood tree as that blooms in late summer. This looks like one of several Vaccinium species, but could be another member of the Heath family. Without more pictures and information such as height, etc then an ID is impossible.
