Mystery on the underside of a bean leaf.
Raised. Leaf otherwise healthy. Fungus or bugs?
Variety "Hopi Pole," showing a couple of variable seed features common in Phaseolus:
-When first shelled/not 100% dry, many seeds will look white instead of their true, final color. In the first photo the one white seed will dry down and become brilliant orange like the others.
-In patterned seeds, it's pretty common for the pattern to "reverse," so a plant that's primarily orange beans with red speckles will make a few red beans with orange speckles. Usually this seems to be on a pod-by-pod basis, but sometimes it's in the same pod, like in the second photo. I've somewhere seen this reversal also called "day for night."
I've seen Hawks in the Backyard before but today(9-6-2014) was the longest it stayed, maybe around 3-4 minutes. You could tell that it was looking for food.
