Sapling white oak roughly 1 meter in height. Lobed leaves with no teeth or extended center vein.

Terrible photos, but b-t green is consistent with the few details that are visible and reports of others that day.
Terrible photos, but blue-winged warblers were reportedly observed by others that day, and the dark eye stripe seems clear enough.
This bee is commonly found on George Washington University grounds thanks to Hartmut Doebel's bee hives in Lisner Hall. They enjoy a diversity of plants and make honey for the Founding Farmer's restaurant in Georgetown.
This damselfly was very narrow and the size of the lavender leaf. The head is dark blue with black stripes and the tail is a bright, baby blue color.
