Newly-emerged nymphs, and egg cluster. On hazelnut leaf.
One of several seen each evening this past week
Saw this little bee in my sunflower loaded with pollen on his legs. Not your typical honey bee, he's more the size of a medium fly or half the size of a honey bee. He's harveating right alongside the bigger bees.
Huge. In the saddle of a tree. Chicken of the woods?
Flying insect of some sort
I only saw this one bird along the road. Conditions were very dry.
Large green metallic beetle. He buzzed down to my mulch & burrowed in.
