Monarch Butterfly emerging from Chrysalis.
It looks like a gigantic ant... That's red and fuzzy. Look to the middle left of the picture.
All 5 are still in my fennel plant. They're a lot bigger today though.
The fledgling we found a couple of days ago came into our garage this morning as we opened the garage door so my husband caught it a placed him in the bushes near by.
I found 5 of these in one of my fennel plants.
2 found in swimming pool. Also found one while walking and have several pupa shells in front yard. Do we know which kind they are as I know this is a bug emergent year for some.
six new baby Monarch caterpillars that hatched within this past week.
Larva of the Syphid Fly on milkweed with aphids
Quarter sized moth.. sort of pinkish with long snout.
Saw this beetle on my rattlesnake master.. From the back it looks like fly eyes. I don't know if that is camouflage or just looks like that to me. (in further reading it is suppose to resemble a hornet from the back)
My first one to photograph.. Yeah!! Hope I ID'd it correctly
