Northern Cricket Frog (Acris blanchardi, old name Acris crepitans). Small size, nearly always near permanent water. Can be very variable in coloration but nearly always a dark, backwards-pointing triangle between the eyes.

I'd probably call that a Fowler's Toad. They are more common in SE MO and most American Toads do not have such a striking pattern. That said, it's a good day when you can definitively identify a toad in MO!

I don't see a lizard. Perhaps it was in another photo?

Difficult to tell for sure, but probably red-eared sliders (Trachemys scripta). They are the most common basking turtle at Mingo. (Painted turtles are also very common but these are not painted turtles.)

I think it's a dark red-sided (Thamnophis sirtalis).

Is this spotting a male Widow Skimmer?

Great, thanks! Is the black coloring on the wings diagnostic for this species?
