Description

On St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum). Flower is ~2 cm across. Wish I'd gotten another shot, without the "bonus" bug -- didn't even see it as I was taking the pictures. SMadsen notes that Aplocera is used as biocontrol against Hypericum, but doesn't seem to be as pale as this.

This mohawk caught my eye. Can't wait to see what these are when they open! No leaves, just a single long stem.

Common Mullein. Will probably be better when it really gets started, but I couldn't resist this shot now.

This is called Spotted Knapweed, but I think that's an awfully ugly name for such a beautiful flower. Unfortunately, it is considered an invasive weed.

Black Knapweed: black involucre below the flower head; usually no spreading rays
Spotted Knapweed (above): short spreading rays, divided leaves
Brown Knapweed: brown involucre below the flowerhead; long, showy spreading rays

ID, flower & bug? Abundant, sandy soil around seashore marsh. Flower is ~2 cm across. Wish I'd gotten a shot without the "bonus" bug -- didn't even see it as I was taking the pictures.
