This carpenter bee was really digging deep in that fading flower.
Flying around the yard. First one I've seen this year.
No photo, but I saw it flying around the zinnias in my front yard.
Only got this view of it.
Flying across Rte 97.
So dense that it's like a slimy carpet on the gravel!
Brown Snake. Very docile. Near Northwest Branch. Perhaps stressed by flooding.
I found this between the screen and window when I opened it. Then I spent a while taking blurry photos of it with my iPad :-) It was about 3 cm long and I assume it was a juvenile.
Hammered by mites, some tingidae, some galls
