I found this wasp eating Hemileuca eglanterina caterpillars that I was trying to rear in my back yard.
Size: 1.5 CM 5/8"
Found this mushroom in a planter strip. It looked old because of the condition it was in. There were 3 of them the largest about 6 or 7" in Dia.
Ring of Mourning Cloak ova. About 1" long and containing about 75ova +/-.
Found under a rock in Bouverie Preserve.
Missing an eye, bright blue underbelly
On a willow tree in my yard
A species of cactus
Found in a puddle on the blacktop.
A score of these flitting around a local householder's trellis of blue passionflower.
The zoom makes this almost look like a tucan chilling in a rainforest because of the giant leaves and the long range zoom. Really, he's sitting on a Eucalyptus tree and the shot was taken under an apple tree. I think there is a nest up there because I see groups of them roosting up there daily.

Black and yellow stripes. Found them before flying around compost but this one was sitting on a succulent. Didn't seem bothered by me.
