More pics of the forest in DeThorne. I hope these edits come out better than the last ones haha. 

This is my favorite area in my town because I like how it came out, plus Lily and Kiki, two of my favorite normal villagers live there.

I was fortunate to witness this Leaf-cutter Bee (Megachile sp.) at the Cedar Valley Arboretum and Botanic Gardens at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa around 6:00 pm today, as it carved several oval leaf segments from a rose plant. The small bee uses these cuttings to raise its young. She stacks them in a small hole, wrapped much like a cigar, where placed inside are an egg and some pollen for the larvae to eat after the hatch occurs.
